The World In, the 30th edition of The Economist’s annual compilation of predictions for the year ahead, is out now

The World in 2016 includes predictions on the year ahead from Economist journalists and guest contributors.  Leaders of three of the world’s biggest emerging markets—China, India and Nigeria—outline their priorities for the coming year; the head of the IMF identifies the actions needed for the world economy; the chief executive of Uber predicts that the sharing economy will transform the world of work for the better; the world’s youngest Nobel peace-prize winner argues for a focus on girls’ education; and the inventor of the world wide web points to the issues that will matter for the future of the digital revolution.

 

The 30th edition also includes a special section, “Minds on the future”, which gathers together predictions from people who look at the future in different ways, ranging from novelist Margaret Atwood to trend-spotter Faith Popcorn and astrologer Mystic Medusa.
