After a number of years of economic crisis, can we now be optimistic about the progress of the global economy?

What are the implications of the backlash against globalisation? With the coming of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, what new opportunities or tools can help keep the global economy together?

In this week’s episode of A Glimpse into the Future, we talk to Hélène Rey, Lord Bagri Professor of economics at the London Business School, and member of the World Economic Forum Council on the Future of Financial and Monetary Systems.

Written by Hélène Rey, Lord Bagri Professor of Economics, London Business School and Rigas Hadzilacos, Project Lead, Future of Education, Gender and Work, GLF, World Economic Forum Geneva.
