Our world is facing a rapid expansion of new ideas, technologies and economic models that are creating profound change in our lives, our businesses, and our future. Technological innovation and the accelerated evolution of our society will give rise to historic debates. What do we value? What is the nature of privacy? How do we define humanity? Leaders must make choices to guide the outcome of these debates into a future that strengthens our economy, enhances global security, and provides for 10 billion people.
Each of us is poised to help build the future. A future where change can broaden opportunity, but threatens to widen inequality. A future where we harness science and technology to contribute to the human story, but confront the perils of economic decline. To build this future, we must harness our spirit of discovery, our diversity of talent, and our determination to create tomorrow’s businesses, today.
The trends outlined in this book will have a profound impact on government, business, and society. It is within this environment that we will build businesses that empower tomorrow’s leaders.
