  • Structural unemployment, widening income gaps and falling confidence in economic policies are among the top 10 trends for world leaders in 2014, according to the report from theWorld Economic Forum (WEF). Tension in the Middle East and North Africa and inaction on climate change also rated as top concerns. The survey which is based on a survey of more than 1,500 global experts, represents an attempt to map the world's challenges in 2014 said that concerns are also rife about the inaction on climate change and a lack of values in leadership.In addition to ranking the top trends for leaders in 2014, the outlook also highlighted emerging trends in the coming 12 months.The emerging trends include implications of shale gas extraction; failure or inadequacy of democratic institutions; the rise of emerging market multinational companies and the role of space in improving our world.With regards to widening income disparities, the report said, the effects of growing income inequality are also being seen within major nations on the global stage, from large emerging markets like China and India to developed nations.From an economic viewpoint, there are some key characteristics that continue to surface acoss our global economy. The firms that will succeed are the firms that will embrace these characteristics and the change that is happening in order to innovate and leapfrog competition. Characteristics like: - A level, global economic playing field presents new opportunities, challenges and competitive technologies - New technologies, services and skills are emerging…and they are quickly being integrated into every aspect of business and everyday life - The pace of change is dramatically compressing “windows of opportunity” for real competitive advantage. - Billions of skilled people are entering the world’s economy, fundamentally transforming the mix of the global workforce - The interconnected nature of our world’s economy means businesses must be prepared to respond to – and capitalize on – changes in real time, with unprecedented flexibility.
