Welcome to the 2020s

Holographic communication, large-scale demographic shifts, the rise of “smart” cities, moonshot medical advances—these are just some of the big innovations and trends that could transform the way we live, work and invest in the decade to come. At the same time, the global economy will continue seeking solutions for everything from climate change and resource scarcity to income inequality.

Listen to our podcast, “Welcome to the 2020s,” to learn more about how the most significant events in our lives and in the markets over the last 10 years will shape the next 10 years.

The podcast explores topics such as the shift toward deglobalization and the aging of the world’s population and the impact of these issues on our individual lives; and how a new generation of home buyers here in the U.S. could spur a fresh growth cycle. The podcast also offers insights into how these trends could change the way we think about investing and where the most promising growth opportunities may lie in the decade ahead.
