Bilhões de consumidores emergentes vêm aí

A mudança (positiva) mais dramática da economia global está prestes a acontecer, entre 2016 e 2020. De 3 bilhões a 5 bilhões de novos consumidores que nunca compraram nada, nunca fizeram um único upload e nunca inventaram nem venderam nada estão prestes a entrar na internet e a dar um mega empurrão na economia global. Muitos desses indivíduos estão na África, na Índia, na China e no mundo em desenvolvimento, e sua renda é baixa, mas esse contingente representa dezenas de trilhões de dólares de novos dólares entrando na economia global... e ninguém fala disso.
