In the fastest ever changing world of today, the face of the global economy has changed since 2000, more than it ever changed through the revolutions that took place in the last millennium.
Many world major trends are bringing new changes, a new demographic revolution, rural exodus and urbanization, the emerging versus old rich countries, the new buying power of new middle classes, the boom in new infrastructures, growing shortages and worry for food supplies, the threats to the environment, the new technologies and the IT, information technology convergences, leading to globalization, major financial shifts, and the current raging world crisis and its uncertain future.
In a less than ten years span, new companies have emerged from the former less developed countries. New global companies appear from all over, from India and China of course, and also from Russia, from Latin America, from Turkey, Egypt, and all the rest of the world. The old structures of the former developed world are shattered. The old multinationals are not staying idle, as they also invest into the emerging countries.
In spite of all uncertainties, optimism is to prevail, as this is hopefully part of a vast move for more riches and peace for many more people.
