Over the next 25 years, global economic growth will come overwhelmingly from countries like China, India, and Brazil. Now rich countries face a dangerous combination of unrestrained consumerism, unsustainable resource depletion, and an undoing of US economic dominance. Including the majority of world population in the global economy is a source of unprecedented opportunity. Inventors, innovators, and creators of new ventures are introducing new technologies and expanding the knowledge networks at a remarkable pace. Opportunities are abundant, not only for residents of previously poor countries, but also for people in the US and other advanced industrialized nations.
