Uprising: Will Emerging Markets Shape or Shake the World Economy?

uprisingSMGeorge Magnus’s Uprising looks at the the world economy in the wake of the most destructive financial crisis since the 1930s and asks if the consensus view about the shift in global power to emerging markets generally, and to China particularly is as robust as it thinks it is.

Magnus, a renowned economist, credited with predicting the financial crisis in early 2007, is Senior Economic Adviser at UBSand a frequent contributor to the Financial Times, BBC, Bloomberg,CNBC and other media outlets.

In Uprising, he explains the effects that the financial crisis is having on the major emerging markets, and why they will be as challenged and threatened as their richer, Western partners.

 

The Age of Aging: How Demographics are Changing the Global Economy and Our World

age-of-agingSMThis book started life as a couple of research projects that looked at the financial and asset market implications of demographic change. It became increasingly apparent that the footprints of demographic change were everywhere, and not just in economic and financial spaces.

They can be found in the discussions and debates we have (and will have) about immigration, family structures, pensions and retirement, work and education, globalisation, religion in a secular world, secularism in religious countries and communities, and global security.

They can also be found in the heat of the current economic and financial turbulence. We are dealing with a cyclical slump in the economy, structural change in the way the world works, and a generational shift as the baby boomers begin to head off into retirement, and as Generation X steps up uncomfortably to fill the shoes that are better suited to the next internet generation.
