Merrill Perspectives

Holographic communication, large-scale demographic shifts, the rise of “smart” cities, moonshot medical advances — these are just some of the big innovations and trends that could transform the way we live, work and invest in the decade to come. At the same time, the global economy will continue seeking solutions for everything from climate change and resource scarcity to income inequality.

In this episode, our hosts Candace Browning, Chris Hyzy and Michael Hartnett unpack some of the most significant events – in our lives and in the markets – of the last ten years, and explore how they could shape the next ten years to come.

They discuss what big shifts like the move toward de-globalization and the aging of the world’s population could mean for our individual lives, and how a new generation of home buyers here in the U.S. could spur a fresh growth cycle.  They also offer insights into how these trends could change the way we think about investing, and where they see the most promising growth opportunities in the decade ahead.
