Beyond GDP: Henrietta Moore's Development Predictions for 2016

"In 2016 we need to jettison our obsession with economic "growth" and instead focus on how we achieve genuine prosperity."

Henrietta Moore: "In 2016 we need to jettison our obsession with economic "growth" and instead focus on how we achieve genuine prosperity. This year represents an opportunity to rethink our whole notion of "development".

But it can’t just be more of the same."

Despite the obvious perils of prediction, Bond’s expert panel of futures thinkers have bravely penned their thoughts on the trends and breakthroughs for 2016 that will change the landscape of international development.
