Rough ride economy
First things first … Global economy running slow
“Despite setbacks, an uneven global recovery continues. Largely due
to weaker-than-expected global activity in the first half of 2014, the
growth forecast for the world economy has been revised downward to
3.3 percent for this year, 0.4 percentage point lower than in the April
2014 World Economic Outlook (WEO). The global growth projection for
2015 was lowered to 3.8 percent.
“Downside risks have increased since the spring. Short-term risks
include a worsening of geopolitical tensions and a reversal of recent
risk spread and volatility compression in financial markets. Mediumterm risks include stagnation and low potential growth in advanced
economies and a decline in potential growth in emerging markets.”

Rough ride economy
First things first … Global economy running slow
We project global growth in 2015 at 3.4%, marking the
fourth consecutive year of disappointing performance.
Jobs, investment and productivity continue to be weak.
Add geopolitical tensions and you get real pessimism.
We may see a mere 3% average annual growth between
now and 2025.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DB5MAiFrmhg
While the world economy is not about to fall off the cliff,
3% will likely not satisfy the increased health, housing
and safety needs of growing middle classes in emerging
economies or service the world’s aging populations.

What about the record-setting November jobs report?
The question is not whether it was a great jobs report.
It’s whether it foreshadows a change in economic trajectory.
The answer is that it was a great but not a game-changing report.

Key takeaways
• The old models of doing business face powerful headwinds
• Strong revenue growth is becoming much more challenging
• Consumers are struggling to stay even, much less spend freely
• A new business model will be better suited to these circumstances
• There is big growth potential in a better match of model to situation

“A lot to learn” from the Uber business model
What happened when Boloco founder
John Pepper became an Uber driver
(Boston.com, February 7, 2014)
“Last October, Boloco co-founder and CEO John Pepper resigned his job after a tussle with
directors about the (regional burritos) restaurant chain's direction.
“In that situation, lots of other entrepreneurs might take time off to travel, or become an
‘entrepreneur in residence’ at a college or investment firm.
“Pepper decided to become a part-time Uber driver.”
Q. Did you sign up because you wanted to learn about Uber?
A. Whatever business I do next, there's a lot to learn from their model … I think they could
really affect the world of restaurant and retail.

Key takeaways
• Uber All is the new motive force in the marketplace
• It is the path to explosive value growth even in the current economy
• This new model is being rapidly pioneered by well-funded start-ups
• At the very least, this is a huge new competitive threat
• But established companies should tap into this opportunity, too

Perfect analogue to future labor markets
A bifurcation of work into those who manage technology and those
who provide various personal services for those who manage technology
“As workers are displaced by smart machines in
manufacturing and other areas, more individuals will be
employed as personal trainers, valets, private tutors,
drivers, babysitters, interior designers, carpenters, and
other forms of direct personal services … The middle of
the distribution is thinning out and this process appears
to have a long ways to run.”
“We can expect a lot of job growth in personal services …
The more that the high earners pull in, the more people
will compete to service them, sometimes for high wages
and sometimes for low wages.”
