Understanding The World’s Largest Economy
and Tomorrow’s New Future

The U.S. economy emerged from its worst recession since 1938 to become the world’s first 15 trillion dollar economy in 2010.  It did so because U.S. businesses increased productivity faster than any period on record all the while having the highest profits and largest cash reserves ever recorded.  The U.S. is now poised to set the pace for new business activity globally as it became in 2012 the world’s first 16 trillion dollar economy.  Manufacturing and construction industries will boom as new technologies change living and working spaces.  These new technologies will also create growth in healthcare and agriculture as the demand for new lifestyles worldwide expands.  Get ready for phenomenal growth as technology, demographics and new consumer expectations drive new business starts and the reformulation of current businesses.

Imagining the World of 2020

Worldwide GDP reached a record high of 70 trillion dollars in 2012 and will continue to grow and prosper in new and creative ways.  Creativity, technology and wealth are driving new industries and business development opportunities unlike any period in history.  Healthcare, energy, education, finance and agriculture are changing at the fastest pace ever recorded as the new creative economy dominates both the service and manufacturing sectors.  Get ready for a world that is increasingly borderless and un-tethered and driven by the fastest rate of change ever recorded in history.

The New Middle Class

Open Source Hardware (OSH) and 3-D assemblers are driving the resurgence in manufacturing. It’s small, family-owned, local and often in garages.  And the labor force needed for this renaissance is blue collar: people who know how to make things. Untethered Wireless Smart Mobiles (WSM) are connecting everything from healthcare to driverless cars and the labor force needed for this is no-collar- t-shirt- creative types who thrive on cultural clusters. Get ready for a major revolution in education, architecture and lifestyles as the new middle class in America dominates this century.

“Over the last fifteen years, Dr. Lowell Catlett has made four encore appearances at the International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Association’s annual seminar and expo. Each time, he has received rave reviews and top rankings from attendees.  His ability to deliver timely and sometimes complex information in an easy-to-understand, engaging and humorous presentation is why we keep bringing him back.  It’s easy to get new speakers. It’s very difficult to get new speakers that can appeal to multiple business categories, multiple age ranges, and multiple interests. Dr. Catlett does it all seamlessly.  He connects the pieces and draws mental images for our attendees, no matter what the subject.  He was our highest-rated speaker again this year and you know that we’ll invite him back!”
Executive Director, International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Association

“Just a quick note to thank you for working with us to have Lowell at our event on Monday. I know you are not surprised that we were very pleased! Lots of positive comments…..one hospital CEO told our COO that Lowell was the best speaker he has ever heard at any conference. Not only is he a terrific, entertaining, and relevant speaker–he was so easy to work with…. such a kind and down-to-earth person. It will be hard to find someone to match this next year.”
