TOPICS

The Global Consumption Boom – Why Everything Is About To Change

As the middle-class balloons in emerging nations, a global consumption boom will have an unprecedented impact on food, fuel, precious metals and other commodities. The likely impact on the global standard of living will drive geopolitical and economic uncertainty. Vikram Mansharamani untangles the dynamics and helps audiences think differently about the nature of global prosperity and how it will shape their business.

 

The End of Cheap Food – A Forecast

Food is emerging as one of the future’s most volatile assets. Shifting political, economic, climatic and societal change all factor into the equation. Vikram Mansharamani shows that the era of cheap food is over and describes the geo-political and geo-economic ramifications—from Wall Street to Pudong. The implications of land grabs, fertilizer availability, climate change, water scarcity, and price-related food (in)security will have profound impact on our world.

 

The Global Economy – An Unconventional Look

Europe falling apart? China collapsing? Treasury bubble popping? Japan’s economy imploding? Energy dynamics creating geopolitical unrest? Vikram Mansharamani applies his multi-lens approach to help people manage the cross-currents of rapidly-changing global economic, financial and political developments. His customized content incorporates information that’s fresh and relevant.

 

Spotting Bubbles Before They Burst

Vikram contends the ability to identify financial (and other) bubbles before they burst is easier if you step outside your expertise. Narrow focus can lead to tunnel vision. Instead, look broadly through multiple lenses—to art markets, architecture, popular culture, economics, politics and more. Vikram empowers audiences—assuring them that they don’t need to be an expert to effectively anticipate the future.
