These Macroeconomic Trends Are About To Fall On Us

Title Thumbnail 16.jpg

The global economy is continually changing, and it’s important to keep up with the latest trends. Understanding how macroeconomic trends can impact you (and your business) is one of the best ways to ensure that you remain competitive in this constantly evolving market.

These are some of the most important macroeconomic trends that you should keep an eye on before they suddenly fall on you :

The Globalization Paradox

Globalization is a positive force for the world economy and it's impacting the way we work, but it can also have some negative impacts. For example, globalization has led to increased competition between countries and companies. This means consumers have more choices in terms of where they buy products or services from.

Globalization creates new opportunities for businesses and employment in many industries across the globe such as technology, retail trade and manufacturing—but these changes also mean losses at times when old jobs disappear due to automation or outsourcing (when foreign companies take over local operations). Meta's 11,000 jobs lay off is a trend that has being going on for awhile and is predicted to continue. I’m sure most of these jobs are going to be automated. Software is literally eating the world, would it one day eat humans too?

How the Internet Became a Tool of Globalization

The Internet has become a tool for globalization. It allows companies to reach consumers across the world, making it possible for them to find out about new products and services and purchase them from wherever they are located. This helps companies expand their market share, which in turn increases profits as well as jobs in production facilities that support this growth.

The internet is not just a tool for economic growth; it's also used by individuals who want access to news about their communities or organizations who want help organizing events like fundraisers or fund drives in remote places of the globe.

With globalization, the value of communities becomes a lot higher because it allows likeminded people (and not so like minded people) from all over the world to converge on a certain platform, connect and share ideas, work together in achieving common goals and creating an impact in the world. What better example to look at than the Hive community? Its users are beautifully scattered across the globe and are working on achieving a common goal.

Web 3.0 is Set to be a Game Changer for Globalization

Web 3.0 is a set of technologies that will have a huge impact on the internet. It’s all about connecting people, so they can freely communicate and collaborate with each other without being limited by their physical location or geographic location.

An example includes:

  • Augmented Reality (AR) - You can add digital objects into real world environments using an app, which makes it much easier to see what something looks like in real life, as well as being able to interact with these digital objects in ways that aren't possible right now because most AR apps only allow you to see them on your phone or computer screen instead of actually interacting with them as if they were tangible objects around you at all times during every day life.

Virtual Reality (VR), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain are also part of the technologies that will make up web 3.0. VR is about immersive worlds and what you can do in them; AI is about doing your work faster and more efficiently, outsourcing all boring and laborious tasks, Blockchain ensures that you securely own your assets and the ability to transfer them. All of these technologies are rearing their heads in the global economy and we can see how disruptive they can become. Web 3.0 is a key driving force in the macroeconomic trends.

Insourcing and Outsourcing in a “Merging” World

In a merging world, it's important to understand how macroeconomic trends affect your business. Insourcing and outsourcing are two of the most important ones.

What Is Insourcing?
In 2008, when the global economy was in its worst shape presumably since World War II, many companies were trying to cut costs by moving manufacturing back home from countries such as China and Mexico. These moves were referred to as "insourcing," or bringing jobs back from abroad where labor is cheaper than in the home country.

This trend did go on for sometime but it eventually reversed and the outsourcing began again fueled by globalization. But there’s some difference with this current (or trendy) outsourcing and insourcing, its partial insourcing and outsourcing. Because it’s feasible to only outsource or insource a part of your business.

For examples, some (it’s becoming many) customers prefer products made by local companies who have strong ties within their communities; these same consumers also expect high-quality service when they buy something online or through an app like Amazon Prime. In this case, the production can’t simply be outsourced. However, you can outsource the labor (i.e. people working for you) via virtual assistants.

Conclusion

Macroeconomic trends are a great way to predict the future of business and global markets. They can also provide valuable insights into what you or your business should be doing in order to succeed.

With that in mind, I hope this article has given you some ideas on how to profit from these trends while they’re falling or about to about to fall. For me, Web 3.0 is what I fixed my eyes on. What about you?
