Promoting Prosperity in a World in Transition

Promoting Prosperity in a World in Transition



Over the past century, vast progress in education, health, technology, and energy has created healthier markets and communities. People live longer, business is more diverse, and global prosperity has made dramatic gains. But human development goes hand in hand with economic growth, and major opportunities remain to foster both. As the tension between globalization and isolation continues, where will growth come from, and how will it compare to expansion in the past? How should leading nations, institutions, and policy makers best incentivize change and leverage power—private and public—to champion this movement? What role should private investment have in creating new markets and sectors?
