LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - April 1, 2014) - The global economy is no longer led by labour or industry, as it has been in the past, but by innovation. Ours is an age of advancement, and the longstanding consensus that profit can justifiably come at any cost has been superseded by a culture of innovation.
The economic, social and technological transformation that has taken hold these past few years has required a huge effort on the part of industry leaders, and asked that various cut new paths in the sectors in which they work. Whether it is augmented reality, cleantech or artificial intelligence, we at The New Economy have chosen to celebrate the companies and individuals we feel are leading the commercial advance.
In the Spring 2014 issue of The New Economy, we name the individuals and companies that took major steps forwards in 2013, in this year's Innovation 40.
We also cast an eye over the rampant patent disputes that have come to dominate the smartphone industry, as damages reach into the billions. We look at the changing nature of TV, as major players such as Neflix, HBO and the BBC explore the possibilities of TV on demand, and we delve into the world of Arctic drilling and the billions of dollars wasted in the pursuit of black gold.
For an insight into these issues and many more in the worlds of technology, energy, business and strategy, look no further than the Spring issue of The New Economy; available in print, online and on your iPad now.
