The 3 megatrends that are shaping the world (world population growth, the exponential advance of technology and hyper-connectivity) are going to trigger a great tidal wave which will move the economic and commercial center (of gravity) to the East.

3,000 million new people will emerge in the next decade, generating a new generation of consumption but with a clear feature: they´ll get the state-of-the-art technology, which will dramatically increase competition. This being so, economies, companies and institutions cannot waste more time and must get ready for challenges.

As in climate change, there will be losers and winners. Markets and wages will be polarized and the education gap will become larger. Here I collect 5 key points to build a winning project.

Las tres megatendecias que están moldeando el mundo (el crecimiento poblacional, el avance exponencial de la tecnología y la hiperconectividad) van a provocar un gran maremoto que va a trasladar el centro económico y comercial hacia el Este.
