  • The Leading Indicators

    Everyday we are bombarded with numbers that purport to tell us whether we are doing well or badly, whether our future is bright or grim. These numbers – GDP, inflation, unemployment – rule much of the world and shape whether we buy a home, start a business, and spend money individually or nationally, but they shouldn’t. All of these were invented a century ago, and using them to navigate our lives today is like using a 1950s road map to get where we need to go. Instead, every person and every business should start not with what these numbers do or do not tell us but with what questions you need to answer. Then, using the unparalleled power of big data, you can craft you own indicators to help guide your decisions. In this talk, Zachary Karabell offers a tour of how these numbers shape our world, how that leads us astray, and how we can all do better by unlocking the data at our fingertips rather than relying too much on outdated numbers that only capture a part of the world we now live in.

  • What’s Going on in the World Economy?

    Karabell analyzes the current domestic and global economic environment. With key data points and eye-opening insights, he looks at the multi-decade transformation the economy is in – for example, the emergence of the middle class around the world and the movement to service economies – and brings a unique perspective to the discussion of what audiences can expect in their near-economic future. From the interconnectedness of the world’s financial markets all the way down to how fiscal policy affects American business, Karabell addresses the trends that will most affect our economy and lives in the years to come.

  • The Global Economy According to the Leading Indicators

    In this presentation, Karabell fuses his global economic outlook presentation with his talk on leading indictors. Believing that we rely too heavily on metrics like GDP, inflation, unemployment, and trade to forecast economic performance and growth, he shows audiences how to craft their own indicators that will help them understand and navigate the current economic climate. Karabell challenges common assumptions from global economics to the future of American innovation and growth to environmental sustainability. He brings a unique perspective to the discussion of globalization, the domestic and world economy, business, and the shape of things to come.
