Monthly Highlights, December 2021
While economic growth has been sluggish over the past two decades in advanced economies, balance sheets and net worth that have long tracked it have tripled over the same period. What does this reveal about underlying economic health and resilience as the world looks to recover from the pandemic? This month, our featured story takes stock using analysis from national balance sheets and raises some critically important questions for policy makers and business leaders. Other highlights in this month’s issue include the following topics:

  • why employers must adopt new ways of leading to retain employees
  • how CIOs can write a new chapter in their technology playbooks
  • how executives can define an effective net-zero program
