Abstract

In a paper entitled Looming Ahead (Finance & Development, 2014), five Nobel Prize winners discussed what they each saw as the biggest problem racing the global economy of the future. These included George A. Akerlof, Paul Krugman, Robert Solow, Michael Spence and Joseph E. Stiglitz. In this paper, we look at the relationships between the problems exposed by them.
