Talking Points

What a Wonderful World

Jonathan Pain believes that the most significant and defining economic phenomenon of our lifetime is the rise of the Asian middle classes.

He will urge you to re-consider the prism through which you view the world and suggests that much of the media has an obsessive focus on the negative and rarely highlights the many positives.

'What a Wonderful World' is about where the world is heading in the years to come and the key factors that will shape and define the journey ahead.
