Renowned economist Daniel Lacalle is the keynote speaker at “The Next Big Thing” conference

Top economist Daniel Lacalle is coming to Sofia in order to take part in Bloomberg TV Bulgaria’s conference The Next Big Thing. Daniel Lacalle is a PhD in Economy, author of best-selling books and fund manager. In 2016, he was ranked as one of the Top 20 Economists in the World by Richtopia. At The Next Big Thing 2019, Lacalle will give a presentation on the opportunities and challenges of the New Economic Model.

According to Lacalle, the world faces three important trends: the ageing of the population in the western countries, the technology revolution challenge and the rise of the middle class in the emerging economies.

He believes that governments are fixated on inflation and stimulus when the global challengers are not demand-driven but of supply.  To spur growth and tackle the opportunities of these major trends, the business community needs to re-evaluate historical perceptions of inflation, growth and expected returns.  These and more topics will be discussed during The Next Big Thing 2019.
