2022-2023 Research Focus: Emerging markets and economic globalization
A majority of the world's population lives in an emerging market and represents nearly half the world's GDP. The future of innovation and economic growth holds equal weight on the shoulders of these countries. Additionally, international trade has become an ever-increasing share in the global economy, and disruptions to it are a mounting concern, threatening the path for lower income countries to become prosperous. In an increasingly globalized world, the distinction between our economic interests and the rest of the world's become one and the same. It is imperative that global leaders and policy makers pursue sound economic policy that takes into account emerging markets and economic globalization in order to make the world a safer, prosperous, and developed one.
