The center of economic and financial gravity shifted eastward in 2010. The decade began with North America and Europe leading the planet economically and culturally. It ended with them branded by aging populations, fraudulent financial sectors, and expensive military. The emerging markets, particularly Asia, flowered in no small part thanks to first world investment over the last two decades while Eurasia emerged as the hot spot reflecting the competition of the U.S., China, and Russia for resources.
In this week’s Solari Report (Thursday, January 6th), I’m doing my year-end wrap-up looking back at events in 2010 and discussing what they mean to our future. Here are some of the topics I will cover.
