The 2008 global financial crisis left the world reeling - markets went under, millions of jobs were lost and economic security was deeply compromised - all within the space of a few months. IMF economist Min Zhu lays out how global economies are intricately connected, and how a bankruptcy in one country can cause lasting damage worldwide. Understanding these complex relationships - and implementing protective systems to guard against similar meltdowns in the future - he urges, is imperative if we’re to protect against the increased volatility of our hyperglobal era. TED@BCG Paris embraced the concept of continuous change. To manage the growing complexities of this new normal, speakers sought inspiration from history and biology to describe creative, imaginative, unexpected ways ahead.
