The Global Business Insight Report

There is much to worry about in 2022. The world is in its third year of a deadly and divisive pandemic, climate change is an existential threat, the inequality gap is growing, and political tensions are rising. It’s hard to find the positive amid such chaos and despair, yet hope flourishes for those who dare to look. In this report, the students at the Joseph H. Lauder Institute for Management & International Studies reveal the stories hidden beneath the headlines and show how nations, industries, organizations, and individuals are building toward a better future.

Latin American economies are modernizing and adapting to consumer demand. In Africa, several countries are using what they’ve learned from past disease outbreaks to stay ahead of COVID-19’s deadly curve. And in a reversal from history, China is now encouraging families to have three children. The indomitable human spirit is accelerating change around the world, and there are no signs of a slowdown.

Contemporary English philosopher Alan Watts said, “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into, move with it, and join the dance.” The students of the Lauder Institute have taken this sentiment to heart, and they offer the following articles that cast a hopeful eye on the future.
