A look at the world in 2020 and, more speculatively, 2050. Which countries are the likely beneficiaries of the changes? We will examine key major economies: China, India, Russia and Brazil, and key regions such as the Middle East and Africa, as well as the prospects for resource based economies, including Canada and Australia. It is a well known economic conclusion that Australia's success at cricket tends to be negatively correlated with their economic success so we will predict who will be winning the Ashes in future years!
