Building on the hugely successful annual Economist "The World in..." publications, this essential guide to the twenty-first century captures the sweeping, fundamental trends that are changing the world faster than at any time in human history. In 2050 there will be 9.3 billion people alive - compared with 7 billion today - and the number will still be rising. The population aged over sixty-five will have more than doubled, to more than 16 per cent; China's GDP will be 80 per cent more than America's; and the number of cars on India's roads will have increased by 3,880 per cent. And, in 2050 it should be clear whether we are alone in the universe. What other megachanges can we expect - and what will their impact be? This comprehensive and compelling book will cover the most significant trends that are shaping the coming decades, with each of its twenty chapters elegantly and authoritatively outlined by Economist contributors, and rich in supporting facts and figures. It will chart the rise and fall of fertility rates across continents; how energy resources will change in light of new technology, and how different nations will deal with major developments in science and warfare. "Megachange" is essential reading for anyone who wants to know what the next four decades hold in store.

Recenzii

If you want to know what the future may look like, here it is. A brilliantly well informed guide - all I can say is wow
This brilliant book delves beneath the crises in the newspapers to expose the forces that our reshaping our economy, our politics and our everyday lives. Limpid and provocative, it sets the facts and figures of tomorrow's world into a narrative that is gripping and compelling.
there are thoroughly engaging pieces here, especially from the science crowd
