A new report by Citi and the Oxford Martin School outlines the main global opportunities and risks facing investors, companies, and governments today. 'Future Opportunities, Future Shocks: Key Trends Shaping the Global Economy and Society' is the first Global Perspectives & Solutions (Citi GPS) paper published in a new partnership between Citi and the Oxford Martin School. The two organisations will co-produce up to 15 reports authored by Oxford Martin School academics in the next five years, covering societal, economic, and technological challenges.
This report - authored by Professor Ian Goldin, Director of the Oxford Martin School, with contributions from Citi researchers and analysts - examines the drivers of globalisation and the global trends that will shape the future. With the Ebola pandemic and cross-border terrorist networks currently dominating the headlines, the report is timely in its analysis of global risks and its proposal of responses that will help ensure that the significant opportunities of globalisation can be maximized.
