Brave New World
Presentation by Dr. Hendrik Leber, Managing Partner of ACATIS Investment
Is the world getting better or worse? On an intuitive level, everything seems to be getting worse – we are surrounded by criminals, inept politicians, unscrupulous captains of industry, cruel dictators and fanatic zealots. But in fact, when it comes to hunger, poverty, education and global peace, the world has significantly improved over the last decades and centuries. Technologies are now vastly accelerating the changes that are happening in the world. It is still not clear whether we will inhabit a concrete and overheated surveillance state dominated by hunger, or whether we will be able to live our lives on our own terms without a worry in the world. Our goal today is to sketch out the bandwidth of potential developments – and the resulting investment opportunities.
