Professor Phelps believes that although inflation may be able to keep the unemployment rate in check, there is ultimately no correlation between inflation and unemployment rate in the longer run. He argues that ‘expectation-adjusted Philips Curve inflation is impacted by not only unemployment rate but also expectations on price and wage hikes.

What does the future society hold?
Today, we live in the Information era represented by computers, but what’s next? What changes will it bring to offices, market and the way people spend their time? Let us think this through to draw implications for the new forms of wealth creations. Emotion-based marketing, a key strategy by many firms these day, will continue to be important in the future society, if not more. But what other strategies are there to be employed that is different from those in the Industrial days or the Information Era? And who will be the players that can replace today’s Microsoft and Google, which leads the IT development by thinking out of the box and creating new businesses based on new imagination? What type of talent do we need in the future society? Futurist Rolf Jensen believes that the world will be dominated by the ‘Dream Society’ that sells emotions and dreams. Let us get a taste of the Dream Society that awaits us.

Designing is one thing and styling is another. The purpose of styling is to make appearance of a product appealing, whereas designing starts with thinking over how to create a product from the product planning phase. The reason why Korea has yet to witness birth of a product like iPod is partly attributable to a lack of perception of the boundary between designing and styling.
Stefano Giovannoni, a world-famous Italian designer, demonstrates outstanding capability in all the design areas ranging from industrial design, interior design, construction design to furniture design. He delivers a speech on the world of value that he creates with design.
What it takes to be a good design? What kind of designs would customers want? What are problems with design of Korean products? Which way should we follow for further development, going forward?
