The financial markets have regained grounds following losses in recent weeks. However the current global outlook remains largely uncertain. The decision of the Federal Reserve to announce its emergency rate cut on the 3rd March 2020, the first since the Financial Crisis, sent shock waves amongst investors with the Dow tumbling nearly 1,000 points following what was regarded as the “surprising” announcement . Even though stocks have fluctuated in recent weeks, stock markets have rebound since the Tuesday announcement.
Recent events have demonstrated the importance of engaging technologies and techniques to address matters of global significance – particularly those which impact economically, socially and environmentally, in a holistic and futuristic manner – taking into account the interests of future generations.
Humanity and global relationships are shaped and defined, not just through the manner in which global issues are addressed, but the techniques and responsibilities towards others, at a global level also, in deploying such techniques.
