With hands-on experience and a global perspective, Ted Fishman educates audiences about two of the biggest trends changing life, business and politics today: the world-changing effects of China's rapid growth and the all-pervasive changes for individuals, businesses and governments that will be ushered in as the world’s population tips from being overwhelmingly young to being dominated by older age groups.

Fishman is fluent in the major economic trends and predicts what the economy has in store for your future.
