* Challenges and opportunities in a turbulent world│Daron Acemoglu(Author of ‘Why Nations Fail’): This talk will argue that three challenges will shape the next 50 years of the world. These are: demographic change throughout much of the world; automation and changing nature of work; and the retrenchment of democracy. I will discuss all three of these challenges and what they imply for different parts of the world, and why we may have underestimated their importance. I will also draw out the connections between them and explain how we can turn these challenges into opportunities for building a dynamic and inclusive economy for the 21st-century. #DaronAcemoglu, #WhyNationsFail, #next50years
