About this book

Each year, Vital Signs presents emerging trends in more than 100 clear and compelling tables and graphs, accompanied by concise, thoughtful analysis. This tenth volume shows in graphic form the key trends that often escape the attention of the news media and world leaders, trends that are often ignored by economic experts as they plan for the future.
