Papers & Events: What Will 2052 Look Like?

The Limits to Growth co-author Jorgen Randers recently released 2052: A Global Forecast for the Next 40 Years that attempts to project global economic and ecological trends for the next forty years based on similar thinking to that which underpinned the controversial Club of Rome report.  Capital Institute agrees with the scale of the challenge Randers presents. But we take a different tack when looking at the global political challenge: instead of assuming failure, we believe it is our responsibility to find solutions and advocate for their acceptance.  A part of this process is our report Economics, Finance, Governance, and Ethics for the Anthropocene now available for comment.
