“In 2000, 24 companies from emerging economies were on the Fortune 500 list. By 2013, there were 130. By 2025, it will be 225 or almost half. The planetary axis is shifting, with profound implications. Align yourself to facts, not fiction.” – #Futurist Jim Carroll
Some days, as a futurist, its pretty tough because there are a growing number of people who think of a fictional future, one based more on the trends of 1950 rather than the reality of today.
And so today’s photo comes from an event I did just before I went to Tokyo, where I spoke to several hundred economic development executives from across the US, on what they needed to do to align themselves for economic growth. This is one of the statistics I used, and I’ll do a blog around the issue later today.’’
