A decade ago, the global financial crisis was beginning to bite.
It was a year after the first global recession since the end of the Second World War, and the country’s economy was still struggling.
The economic outlook was dire.
The global economy had lost more than half its value over the previous decade.
The global debt was now more than 200 times its peak in the aftermath of the crash in 2008.
The unemployment rate had jumped to 20 percent.
There were signs that the global economy might be on the brink of a collapse.
But then came the eclipse, which marked the end to a year of recession that would leave the world economy struggling to find its footing.
The eclipse of 1997 was a watershed moment for the world, as it marked the beginning of a new global economic order.
That economic order, which was largely built on the assumption that economic growth would remain high, would see a gradual reordering of the world’s economic order that would ultimately lead to a dramatic reversal of the global recession.
At the time, many economists and policymakers were expecting the global economic crisis to be over within a decade.
They were wrong.
The economic order of the early 2000s, in which the global economies were able to recover and growth was rising, was rapidly being replaced by a new order that was premised on a more pessimistic outlook for the global environment.
That new order of global growth, however, was also beginning to unravel.
For most of the last decade, the world has been growing rapidly.
The world economy grew by an average of 2.5 percent a year over the past decade.
That pace of growth has since slowed to 1.7 percent a day, a record low pace of expansion.
The slowdown in global growth has been accompanied by a decline in global investment.
In the last 10 years, the size of global corporate debt has grown at an annual rate of 7.8 percent a point.
That growth rate has slowed to a rate of 2 percent a week, the slowest rate in nearly two decades.
The slow pace of economic growth is not sustainable.
We need to accelerate our growth in order to create the conditions for a sustainable recovery in the global and global business environment.
That’s why we need to move forward with a comprehensive economic strategy to increase the efficiency of economic activity.
This strategy is not a simple one.
The task at hand is to create a more sustainable and robust economic system that is sustainable and resilient.
It is a complex and challenging task.
But it is a task that is achievable.
And it is achievable in a way that is both timely and equitable for the countries and for the nations of the developed world.
The most urgent challenges facing our planet are not financial.
They are climate change, extreme weather events, pandemics, rising sea levels, biodiversity loss, and so on.
The challenges facing the world today are not economic.
They will not be solved by financial incentives, policies, or programs.
The challenge for the next decade is to rebuild the foundations of a sustainable global economy.
And the key to doing so is to build a strong and sustainable global infrastructure that can meet the challenges facing us today.
This is the first of three parts.
The second part will cover the next three years and will focus on the next two challenges.
