Shaping the future of finance

The next major financial crisis will be in 2045 (presentation)

I was asked to keynote at the ISITC 18th Annual Industry Forum & Vendor Show in Boston this week.


Knowing that it’s always important to pull the chain a little bit, I put forward the title: “The next mega global financial crisis will be in 2045”.

This was based upon an earlier blog, where I talked about the tensions of China and India leading to another crisis.

Here is the slide deck:

Pretty much speaks for itself I think and to be clear, some of this I truly believe will happen, and some of it does not stand a cat in hell’s chance of ever happening.

You decide which.

There were a few questions afterwards about where Russia sits and what about Canada?

I answered that Russia is too unfocused to have a clear picture of its future, whilst it stays under the iron first of Putin, and what about Canada?

Anyways, hope you enjoy.
