However, while some companies are delivering examples of where this potential is becoming reality, is the progress quick enough and at a large enough scale to help address the rapid onset of global challenges we face?

As we enter the final weeks of the year, we take a look at our forecast trends from this time last year. How have our seven predictions for 2014 panned out? 1. Inequality and vulnerability. We forecast increased global concern about inequality, which has been borne out in our Radar study of citizens around the world, as well as post-Davos conversations and the huge debate around Thomas Piketty’s book, Capital in the 21st Century.
