From Poverty to Empowerment: The Rise of the Global Middle Class

The middle class stands as the most successful demographic in world history. By the time we reach 2030, it's projected that the fifth billionth person will have joined its ranks. This journey, which began just over two centuries ago by people in pursuit of a better life, has sparked an unparalleled global transformation.

In today's landscape, where half of the global population finds themselves at or above the middle-class threshold, the work of my guest
Homi Kharas shines a light on their journey from poverty to empowerment. 

He outlines this future in his new book, The Rise of the Global Middle Class: How the Search for the Good Life Can Change the World.
