Urbanisation, globalisation and technological change have re-shaped societies and the world economy in the past decades. Urbanisation is accelerating. Globalisation is perhaps retreating now, but is continuously boosted by new technology and its capacity to integrate economies more deeply with each other. How do these forces of development and change link up with each other – and how will they evolve in the future?
