“We are witnessing an unparalleled number of systems collapsing around the world as national governments struggle to adapt to the emerging global economy,” says Frey. “Most of today’s fixes will be very short lived as we move toward a world governed by global systems. We are living in the great age of experimentation as we enter into unprecedented new territory and attempt to write the rules for global business, global societies, and global governance.”
