Forecasting the future is difficult. It requires awareness of several technological, demographic, and geopolitical trends, as well as the ability to imagine how those trends can intersect with each other in unexpected ways. So today’s episode covers a lot of ground, including the rise of remote work, an aging population, the development of China and Africa, climate change, and the blockchain. As we exit the COVID pandemic, these are just some of the trends that will radically transform the world over the next decade. And I’m pleased to discuss them with today’s guest, Mauro F. Guillén.

Mauro is the Zandman Professor of International Management at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. He is also the author of 2030: How Today’s Biggest Trends Will Collide and Reshape the Future of Everything, released in August of last year.
