About This Show
Show Info: We are witnessing a global geo-economic transformation centred on the rise of emerging markets, the growth of a new global middle class, rapid urbanisation, and unprecedented physical and technological connectivity. In a world where 85% of the world’s population lives in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, the centres of gravity in these emerging markets are reshaping the global economic landscape. The 85% is the first podcast produced by the emerge85 lab. Hosted by the lab's co-director Afshin Molavi, The 85% delivers weekly episodes full of discussion with the people shaping the 85 world. Co-located in Abu Dhabi and Washington, DC, the emerge85 lab works with a network of collaborators, thinkers, experts, business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, policy-makers, and other stakeholders in the ‘85 world’ to explore the geopolitical, geo-economic, and geocultural shifts taking place.
