“Technology will decide the question of the number of countries that exist in the world in 2050 more than anything else.”
“One of the most important assets destroyed by the continuing financial crisis cannot be found in any standard national account statistics or economic models. Nevertheless, it is an indispensable premise for every single transaction in any industry worldwide. That asset is Trust. (…) Trust above all has to be regained in order to stimulate the securities markets and, consequently, reflate the European economies. The most promising way of helping investors to regain trust is to give them a good reason to do so: with trading conditions which guarantee integrity, stability, safety, neutrality and transparency.”

What are the most important trends for the future of money? Disruption whilst still creating value for the consumer.
The future is ultimately a keyword written with disruption and the construction of value. Ultimately the future of money is more and more associated with social media disruption and emergent fast paces when it comes to finance, banking and economics. The future of money comes with various twists and it is an ambiguous and powerful maze of concepts that are always shifting. The emergent trends associated are digital and are altogether associated with social technologies, peer to peer share of data, information and trust.
Money and all its different synonyms have originated as much joy as well as controversy. It is probably the bigger source of sorrows through history. Nevertheless in the end Money is necessary for organised societies. Money will always be associated to any society development and has being always part of the way how civilisations and ultimately the future is written with its relative mass or the quantity of matter contained by it or lack of it.
Transmedia storytelling is storytelling across multiple forms of media with each element making distinctive contributions to a viewer's understanding of the story. By using different media formats, transmedia creates "entrypoints" through which viewers can become immersed in a storytelling world.
Telling stories across platforms seems a perfect way to create impact. So why hasn't the documentary community fully adopted it?
There is a Shift between Money, Co-creation, Social Media and Gamification We are in a historical paradox crossroad for humanity. It is thus a frightening time for the world finances and economics where at the same time the concept of money is pushed further through the advent of social media, co-creation, the social graph and concepts such as Gamification that are taking over of reality and creating a kind of twilight zone. On one hand there is extreme poverty mixed with extreme wealth, the advent and rise of countries that just 10 years ago were bankrupt, considered third world or out of the limelight. All of this surrounded by a profusion of media and news where the keywords are all around: demonstrations, “occupy” wall street, crisis, problems and the always eternal global local conflictsmixed with technology, startups, software, venture capital money, crowdfunding and so forth. As David Kirkpatrick put it very well one of the main issues with our present society is that “(…) the world lacks enough leaders who understand the potential for new, technology-driven solutions for global problems. To the degree that there is such leadership, it is concentrated in the business community. But even there, an understanding of tech’s potential is disturbingly uneven. Some companies thrive by embracing new methods of marketing, managing, developing products, and engaging with society. Others, by contrast, steadfastly operate in the old ways.”

despite the recent turmoil in the stock market, the only area of business that is recession-proof is the social media industry. Global industrial firms are battening down the hatches, but the ones with vision and capacity to innovate, understand the digital and software challenges, and move faster with a strong execution capacity will continue to grow.
