During the 2020s, key technologies will converge to completely disrupt the five foundational sectors that underpin the global economy, and with them every major industry in the world today. The knock-on effects for society will be as profound as the extraordinary possibilities that emerge.
In order to create an extraordinary future for humanity – an Age of Freedom – that is fairer, healthier, more robust and prosperous than any that have gone before, investors and decision-makers across government, business, and civil society must start taking action today.

The document is produced by RethinkX, an independent think tank that analyses the impact of technology-driven disruption on society.
