The Disintegration of the World

The Disintegration of the World | Futures, Megatrends | Scoop.it

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 26, 2015 1:43 AM

As we grope our way toward a new domestic and international order, successful businesses will be the ones that recognize a truism that should have been obvious from the start: business and politics are in fact inseparable, and the latter makes ever greater economic integration less certain than business leaders might wish.


Companies not only need to account for this internationally—planning carefully for contingencies—they also need to show that they are invested in the greater good wherever they operate, and are not just working for their own narrow self-interest.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 4, 2015 3:30 PM

Five historical patterns active in the world today have left their mark on all aspects of the world’s economic and social fabric.


  1. Demographic and social change: the combination of greater life expectancy, declining birthrates in many parts of the world, and unprecedented rates of human migration, accompanied by a gradual increase in the status of women and greater ethnic and social diversity within most countries.
  2. Shifts in global economic power: in particular, the much-noted expansion of prosperity in emerging econo- mies at faster rates than in the industrialized world, leading to momentous changes in consumption patterns and a rebalancing of international relations.
  3. Rapid urbanization: the massive expansion of cit- ies around the world, through a combination of migra- tion and childbirth, with major implications for infra- structure, land use, traffic, employment, quality of life, and culture.
  4. Climate change and resource scarcity: the rapidly increasing demand for energy, food, and water, in a fi- nite world with limited natural resources and even more limited capacity for carbon dioxide and a wide variety of other effluents.
  5. Technological breakthroughs: the transforma- tion of business and everyday life through the develop- ment and use of new kinds of digitally enabled innova- tions in fields such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, fabrication (including 3D printing), cloud computing, and the Internet of Things. 
Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, March 5, 2015 2:44 PM
Kenneth Mikkelsen invites us to discover opportunities in the crisis: “Business operates today in a world of accelerating change. Preparing for the inevitable interactions between global forces can help you stay ahead of the competition.”
