Trends in Finance and Economics

Jim Mahar published on

In an attempt to wrap up MBA 610, I made a list of things on the horizon.  It was a tough list to make.  A few things that were really close: FinTech, raising interest rates, the role of government in markets, and more.  


The list:


  1. Income and Wealth inequality

  2. The Anti-globalization movement (a blip or a longer term thing?)

  3. AI and the coming machines

  4. Living longer and slower population growth

  5. Health Care Costs

  6. Global Warming

  7. The bottom billion

  8. Big Data and online secrecy

  9. Confirmation bias and “us vs them”

  10. The changing of Wall Street: Passive and FinTech
