Every day you can find multiple great ideas that could potentially disruptive the current way of doing things. My favourites at the moment are flying modes of transport that could easily replace vehicles that have to travel on roads and flying machines that briefly go to space to get to their destination quicker. They may seem like far off technological developments, but the technology works now. Its flight rules and regulations that will hold them back to protect carmakers and airplane makers not technology risks.
Everyday new innovative ideas and products flood onto the market. For most it will be like Tomorrows World. The innovative ideas will not be sustainable. We want to work with people who want to take over the world in a good way!
Your brand maybe vulnerable to others who have been thinking differently, or from changes to the marketplace. It may fail cause your performance ain’t good enough, or because your competitors change the rules of the game.
How you fail may not matter too much after you’ve failed. It will be too late to consider what you are doing wrong. Kodak didn’t want to change when they had to change to survive. They were making too much money from photographs to change to embrace digital photography. Market changes can kill the best businesses.
The best form of defence is often attack

18th October 2019 Weakest Global Economy Since Financial Crisis 2008
International Monetary Fund IMF says global economy weakest since the start of the last financial crisis.
However the global economy is in a worse place now than the start of the last financial crisis. Central banks around the world back in 2008 2009 could dramatically cut interest rates to support businesses in significant debt and encourage new investment. There is very little room or no room for central banks around the world to cut interest rates.
In short the global economy is in a very high risk zone with few tools to protect itself. One way the global economy can navigate further distress is to resolve and settle all global trade wars and trade more freely.
15th October 2019 International Monetary Fund IMF Says Global Growth Slipping and Could Get Much Worse If Trade Wars Continue
The trade war between USA and China will cut global economic growth in 2019. It is forecast by IMF to be slowest since financial crisis in 2008.
Latest IMF World Economic Outlook projections for 2019 GDP growth reduced to 3.0 percent down from 3.2 percent in July forecast.
If the international trade disputes continue or worsen then there could be a spiral into a global recession as central banks around the world have fewer tools to protect their economies. Interest rates have already been slashed and quantitative easing or other forms of cheap money are already being deployed.
9th October 2019 Asia and Africa Are The Business Growth Zones To Focus On
Even though China is in middle of trade war with USA the rest of Asia is expanding rapidly. Growth in Asia is not as fast but compared to Europe many countries in Asia are growing around 5 times as fast with the exception of Hong Kong.
Several African countries are still growing extremely fast despite the global economic slowdown. Those that are not have massive growth potential over the next decades.
There is a global economic slowdown. A global recession is perhaps on its way if the trade wars continue. However there are parts of the world that remain in massive growth phase. Many are exporters but that does not mean its impossible to export to Asia and Africa. The low currency in the UK creates a massive opportunity for quality goods and services to be sold in Asia and Africa.
1st October 2019 Fear Of Lack Of Government Fiscal Control Is Biggest Risk Facing Businesses Around the World
The risk of a fiscal crisis is the biggest threat to business globally according to a survey from World Economic Forum.
However the biggest risk everyone can agree on is fiscal risk for governments overextending themselves which will eventually snap back to punish future generations.
Governments around the world are being partially protection by low interest rates and quantitative easing QE or cheap fake money.
As the UK cheers the end of austerity with both key political partys pledging to spend spend spend we should maybe consider the effects of UK governments excessively borrowing to spend.
Many economists are comfortable with borrowing to invest in infrastructure improvements especially when money is so cheap right now. This creates wealth in future that can payoff previous borrowing.
However borrowing more to cover in effect just daily government expenditure is very dangerous as eventually you will not be able to borrow still have same expenditure but will have a massive outstanding debt hangover that needs paying off.
The UK and USA seem to think that they can run up huge borrowing bill now. Lets hope they are right. Businesses fear they could be wrong.
4th September 2019 Expert Analysis Of Global Economy Argues The Global Economy Is Contracting Rapidly
UBS bank slashed its forecasts for world growth. The global trade war is biting harder than they thought. UBS reckons central banks around the world will have to cut interest rates to protect economic growth prevent recessions or pull some economies out of recession.
World economic growth will not be 3.2 percent as previously forecast but just 2.5 percent
1st September 2019 Tit For Tat Tariffs From USA and China Will Drag Global Economy Down Further
The USA has imposed 15 percent tariffs on Chinese imported goods from today. In total America has imposed tariffs on around 150 billion dollars of Chinese imports and has plans to impose tariffs on 300 billion dollars worth by end of 2019. The original plan was for 10 percent tariff but this has been increased to 15 percent by USA.
China has imposed 5 percent tariffs on US crude oil. In total China has imposed tariffs on around 100 billion dollars of American imports.
5th August 2019 USA Plans Additional Tariffs On China Creating More Concern About Global Slowdown
Donald Trump plans to add tariffs to more Chinese imports. The escalating trade war between USA and China is creating havoc in the global economy. Many central banks around the world have lowered interest rates to try to support business leaders investments. However more tariffs means more global pain until America and China can agree a mutually beneficial compromise.
Donald Trump plans 10% tariffs on 300 billion dollars of current Chinese imports into USA as from 1st September 2019
Only a new trade agreement will stop the a degeneration of the global economic climate. The tit for tat trade war with USA and China is affecting the whole world but is also hurting both China and USA too.
6th March 2019 OECD Cut Forecasts Global Economy In 2019 And 2020
The OECD has already downgraded global economic growth forecasts in November 2018.
International trade disputes around the world and uncertainty over Brexit will reduce world trading and lower business growth according to OECD.
The Organisation for Economic CoOperation and Development OECD forecasts world economic growth of 3.3 percent in 2019 and 3.4 percent in 2020.
25th February 2019 Hopes Rise For More Global Trade
President Trump has decided to delay raising tariffs on Chinese goods. This has encouraged a brighter outlook on global trade. Hopes are rising that America and China will agree a trade deal which will support an increase in global trade.
9th January 2019 World Bank Forecasting 2.9 Percent Global Economic Growth For 2019
The World Banks assessment of global risks in 2019 has led it to conclude the global economy will continue to slow in 2019 and 2020. Global economic growth in 2020 has been pitched at 2.8 percent.
Some emerging markets may fail to fulfil potential growth opportunities
2nd January 2019 Slower Global Economic Growth In 2019
Global economic growth will slow if the hangover from 2018 continues in 2019.
Political risks on the downside threaten the fluidity of global trade which will slow economic growth. Trade tensions between USA and China and USA and Europe top the list of political risks in 2019.
Less money sloshing about in the global economy will slow global economic growth. Examples include the Eurozone closing the cash flow taps with the end of quantitative easing QE by European Central Bank ECB. In addition and perhaps more significantly the Federal Reserve in USA seem intent on continuing to increase interest rates in America which will make money a lot more expensive thus negatively impacting on economic growth in USA.
Businesses across the globe will find it harder to make a profit in 2019 and this will reduce sovereign state income from taxation and reduce corporate free money available for investment in future which will hit global economic growth.
In addition if political risks ease or reverse the global economy could actually receive a boost. For example there are indications that China is prepared to do a deal with USA. If this happens then 2019 could become a lot more positive.
Germanys private sector expansion slowed to a four year low
China November retail sales grew at the weakest pace since 2003 and industrial output rose the least in nearly three years due to trade dispute with USA.
The European Union EU has not thrown UK Prime Minister a bone to help her get her Brexit deal through UK parliament. This indicates it is highly likely she will have to pivot but to what?
21st November 2018 Trade Disputes and Higher Central Bank Interest Rates Are Slowing Global Economy
On the positive side there are currently no signs of a sharp economic downturn according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD.
The OECD is currently forecasting that global growth would slow from 3.7 percent this year to 3.5 percent in 2019 and 2020. It had previously projected 3.7 percent for 2019.
13th November 2018 Global Growth Is Slowing
According to the International Monetary Fund IMF a number of the bigger economies are slowing and they could suddenly contract should there be a major risk event.
Key global growth risk factors include
USA China trade war could increase costs globally.
Higher energy costs. Oil prices have increased by more than 60 percent in two years.
Certain higher USA interest rates are on their way but how will this impact on global consumption?
Higher USA interest rates will strengthen the dollar the worlds currency of choice. How will a significant strengthening impact on global growth.
Parts of the world are still trying to recover from the global financial crisis including Italys banks and sovereign debt. A collapse of the banking system in Italy would reverberate around the world. Greece can be bailed out Italy can not.
Global growth for 2018 to 2019 to remain at its 2017 level of 3.7 percent but the growth outlook for a number of major economies has been marked down.
17th April 2018 Global Economic Growth 3.5 Percent
Institute of International Finance IIF forecasting faster global economic growth. IIF increased global economic growth for 2018 to 3.5 percent. Much of the increase in growth down to USA tax cuts. These will not only power USA growth but global growth.
16th March 2018 Global Growth Strongest In 7 Years
According to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD global economic growth is growing faster than at any other time in last 7 years. It is forecasting economic growth at 3.9 percent for 2018.
Threats to global economic growth include growing trade war between most other countries and USA as well as other geopolitical issues like Russia v EU / UK, North Korea and the ever present tensions in Middle East.
14th March 2018 A Credit Rating Agency Fitch Has Suggested Global Economic Growth Is Strong and Accelerating
Global economic growth is rising faster now than it has for around a decade.
Unemployment is falling, money is still cheap in most parts of the world and corporate investment is strong.
Fitch is forecasting global economic growth of 3.3 percent in 2018 and 3.2 percent in 2019. Last year it was 3.2 percent according to Fitch.
27th February 2018 You Should Be Optimistic About Your Future
Global growth prospects for 2018-19 are improving and accelerating. Most parts of the world are looking to a better 2018 than 2017 in terms of economic growth and 2017 was one of the best year’s for growth in close to a decade.
Not every business will take advantage of increasing global economic growth, just like not all businesses went bust during the financial crisis starting in 2007 to 2008. The rising tide of business opportunities creates the environment for your business to grow much faster in 2018.
Corporate business leaders in UK who look for new business development opportunities will find them.
If you do not think you have time to explore business growth opportunities, you may get the opportunity to reflect at your leisure after your business collapses. Those companies that fail to grow may find they contract or even fail to survive.
7th February 2018 International Monetary Fund Chief Economist Says Global Economy Growing Faster
The IMF’s chief economist is reported as saying that world economic fundamentals are strong. There is increased trading and more business investment. As a result major economies are the world are growing faster than expected. He sees very broad-based global growth.
2nd February 2018 BusinessRiskTV Forecasts The Economic Forecasts Will Get Global Growth Wrong For 2018
Many economists are forecasting around the 4 percent mark for global economic growth in 2018. BusinessRiskTV forecasts this will underplay the global economic boom that is set to happen in 2018.
If a major global event occurs like World War 111 then growth will be slower but if World War 3 happens we will not care about economic forecasts any longer! Such geopolitical risk events aside we can look around the world and see great news unfolding:
America is feeding in huge corporate and personal tax cuts into its economy. When America grows so does the rest of the world. In addition, low unemployment and faster wage increases in USA will turbo-charge the USA economy in 2018.
Eurozone is experiencing is fastest growth period in around a decade and this will continue, but accelerate in 2018, as people find jobs and property values start to rise making people in the Eurozone feel wealthier. Manufacturing is returning to countries in Eurozone that may have once have forgotten how to make things.
Africa is a sleeping giant that will fail to get its act together in 2018 but will improve on recent economic performance.
Asia Pacific is set to expand faster with the likes of India in particular racing ahead. China will continue to find more and more people jobs in 2018 and will lift more people out of poverty further increasing demand for domestic and international consumption. Japan will finally put decades of deflation behind it and new technology will begin to overcome demographic time-bomb to the benefit of Japanese economy.
The Americas, and Brazil in particular, was once a fast growing area of the globe. South American expenditure will be healthier in 2018 and help develop continental and global growth faster than 2017.
The UK is constantly put down by people in the UK but the UK economy will continue to surprise most UK economists trying to subvert Brexit and grow faster than 2 percent in 2018. Low unemployment, faster wage growth due to skills shortages and rising housing prices will encourage UK consumers to spend more and manufacturing and services sectors will push UK growth faster supported by a return of the construction sector.
Middle Eastern countries will benefit from rising oil prices and rebuilding of some physically damaged countries.
8th January 2018 Global Economy Forecasts: Increasingly More Positive Business Outlook
Previously poorly performing eurozone helping to drive more upbeat global economic outlook.
A survey for Sentix index indicated eurozone business leader confidence is at its highest level since August 2007. The global economy in all regions is looking more positive.

Business leaders need confidence in their decision making and entrepreneurial thinking to find new business opportunities.
Are You an entrepreneur of business leader who is procrastinating or fearful of the future
Look at the world through an improving business and economic environment. The UK is strong and set to get stronger:
House prices are resilient.
Job creation is encouraging.
The pound is weaker but this is a net positive benefit for many businesses.
Borrowing money is probably never going to be cheaper than it is right now.
It’s probably never going to be easier to export from UK to new and existing markets.
The present is good and the future looks bright
The UK has the skills and ability to be greater than it is right now
Don’t listen to the doom-mongers! The UK has more opportunities to grow faster than it has had in front of it for decades. Don’t look back at today and think, “I wish I had seized the day”. The time for waiting is over. Today will be the past and your great historic past is for the making now!
Business Leaders Need To Cut Their Cloth Accordingly
George Osborne said prior to the Brexit Vote on the 23rd June 2016 that if the UK voted to leave the European Union EU, it would have to cut its cloth accordingly.
Well according to economic data so far, the UK has a stable economic platform to launch into strong business growth actions, despite the uncertainty of an impending presidential election in America.
Are there huge economic uncertainties just now?
Of course! When haven’t there been significant uncertainties for business? However, should we wait before investing time and money in our future? Absolutely not! This is the time for sowing the seeds of your future success. Businesses in the UK have so many opportunities for growth.
Where are the growth opportunities ?
Well have you looked properly! They are there. Your competitors may have spotted them. Look and you shall find!
Too much noise and not enough action!
Everybody is busy, but being busy doesn’t mean to say you’re in the growth business. Are you working hard but standing still? Have you got the talent, the assets and the ambition but not the results you’d hoped for?
The UK was built on innovation and hard graft, but in the recent past, we’ve been grafting too much and not innovating enough. The UK’s business leaders need to think smarter, not just work harder.
I could do with some help here mate!
Talk is cheap! I hear you! However, talking with like minded innovators who want to move to the action phase quickly might produce new business growth for your company.
Do most business leaders want the same thing – growth? Presumably none want to down-size. Many are happy to stay the same, though few businesses can survive by staying the same.
Many of your peers are happy to share ways to overcome barriers to business survival and business growth. No one person knows it all and even if they did, what they learnt would soon be out of date. Unless you keep up to date with best practices and evolving methods of working, you are going backwards behind competitors.
Sometimes we need to be inspired by the actions of others
Olympic competitors are inspired by the achievements of other Olympians. They may be at the top of their game, but they can still be inspired by the success of their peers.
Balanced Enterprise Risk Perspective
Are you taking too little or too much risk? Poor business performance can come from too much, or too little risk.
Getting access to the horse’s mouth
If you don’t know – ask for free! It is highly unlikely that your business problems are totally unique. They might be unusual and have a different impact on your business, but the solution to your business problems have almost certainly already been found at another business somewhere in the world.
It is important to get risk into the right perspective. If you don’t know enough about your enterprise risks, it is possible that you are being overly cautious. Alternatively you might be acting (or not acting) recklessly, and are on the edge of catastrophic disaster, due to lack of risk knowledge. Are you deliberately not asking questions cause you might not like the answers?
Are you an entrepreneur or business leader who is procrastinating?
