We live in an age of unprecedented prosperity, a time of unparalleled mobility and innovation, a century-long trend of rapid growth, and the promise of the digital age.
But the world has also seen some dramatic declines in longevity, health and productivity.
As the world ages, so does its health, with the most recent study showing that the median lifespan for men has dropped from 81.9 years in 1950 to just 76.9 in 2016.
The gap between the lives of older people and those of younger people is widening too.
We are living longer and healthier, yet our productivity is also falling.
The latest report from the World Economic Forum, based on data from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), shows that the world’s productivity fell from 2,000 to 1,600 times less than it was a decade ago.
The world’s population is rising, but the rate of change in the number of people living in a given area is still increasing.
In 2050, about half of the world will be over the age of 65.
We’re living longer because the world needs more people in work, but we are also more productive.
The number of workers on the planet has doubled since the 1970s, and now the world produces more than half of all the goods and services produced in the world.
That’s good news, but it means we need more people to get them done.
We need to create more jobs, more opportunity, more innovation, more care for people.
We also need to put more people into work.
This is the story of the last 100 years of global growth, which has seen millions of people gain a second chance to improve their lives.
And, as the world becomes ever more connected, our lives and well-being will continue to change.
The story of globalisation We are in the midst of a globalisation of work, which is reshaping the global economy.
As we look to the future, we can’t ignore the impact of globalization on our lives.
The globalisation that is occurring today is one that will take us on a journey to a new era of prosperity, security and wellbeing.
Our economy is dominated by large, highly developed countries, like China and the United States, with their own economies and societies, as well as vast resources.
We have a very different economy to our global peers.
The US is the world leader in industrial production, but in 2017, it produced more goods and other products than China.
It produced 3.2 billion tonnes of goods and 4.6 trillion tonnes of manufactured goods in 2017.
The United States is a leader in technology, but its technology is in its infancy.
The Chinese and the Japanese are still at the forefront of innovation, and China is building the largest supercomputer on the face of the earth.
The Japanese have the world most advanced robotics technology, and they have built the world first automated factory, but they are also working hard to build the worlds first self-driving car.
The UK is the largest economy in the European Union, but is still struggling to keep up with the global demands of modern economies.
We all know that the globalisation is not going to happen overnight.
But we know that there is an opportunity for us to take the world forward in a new way, by changing the way we do business and by creating a more sustainable and equitable global economy that is for all of us.
So what can we do to take us there?
We need an economy that puts people first and rewards hard work, rather than reward innovation.
The most successful economies have economies that are highly entrepreneurial, focused on innovation and entrepreneurial skills.
They have systems of fair wages and working conditions that reward hard work and the ability to create and innovate.
And they also have systems that reward investment in skills, infrastructure and social inclusion.
We’ve seen the success of the Scandinavian model in terms of growth and innovation.
We believe the future of our economy depends on a more integrated, globalised and collaborative economy, where all of our economies work together to drive growth and prosperity.
We know from the success and sustainability of the Nordic model that it can work for the UK as well.
This will require a strong, collaborative and sustainable global economy with the following characteristics: a global economy based on a fair, competitive, progressive and inclusive global trade system that rewards innovation and hard work
