Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

Media interview October 2008. Expect further shocks to the global economy. Companies which insured other companies will soon be hit by claims of at least $360bn. And hedge funds are under huge pressures. If an investor demands return of – say - $10m, a fund might have to sell $70m of shares to give the $10m back. Expect hundreds of millions of dollars of stock sales by hedge funds.The world is changing faster than you can call a board meeting or develop new strategy so think ahead.
