What big shifts are emerging now?
What’s on the horizon?

How do trends in China impact the rest of the world? What are the effects of big shifts in investor behavior? What are the latest macroeconomic developments, and how will they likely play out on Wall Street and on Main Street? Day after day, our strategists and analysts focus on how the world, and the economy, are changing, and we share our insights with partners and the public at large.

At Goldman Sachs, we strongly believe in the value of sharing our best thinking and engaging experts around the world to share their own perspectives. We believe doing so benefits all participants in the economy by advancing understanding, expanding the conversation and inviting others to build on our insights. We draw on a broad spectrum of resources from across the firm, including unique work on ESG issues from the Global Markets Institute and the GS SUSTAIN teams within Global Investment Research.

A trove of our insights on everything from macroeconomics to technological trends is freely shared with clients, investors, policymakers, NGOs and others. These assets are available as reports, videos, podcast discussions and interactive graphics. To explore them, visit www.gs.com/our-thinking.

CHINA IN TRANSITION

With 1.4 billion people and a GDP of $19.4 trillion, China has profound impacts across Asia and around the world. What challenges, from rising debt to demographics, weigh on China’s leaders? What are the likely effects of the country’s slowdown on the wider global economy? How will China’s push for sustainability align with evolving economic policy? This year, a wide range of issues came before our analysts. We explore these topics at length.

Directors’ dilemma: responding to the rise of passive investing

With investors moving in large numbers to passive and other forms of rule-based investing, stock prices are increasingly correlated to the rise and fall of whole sectors, which makes them less indicative of underlying company performance. So, what’s a director to do? Our Global Markets Institute responds.

The low carbon economy: technology in the driver’s seat

A year after the Paris Agreement, with markets focused on near-term headwinds and policy uncertainty for renewable energy following the U.S. election, Goldman Sachs Research believes key renewable technologies will maintain momentum as they are now as much a transformative tech shift as a response to global environmental challenges. Global coal consumption has already peaked, sales of pure combustion engine cars could peak by 2020, and lighting will shift almost exclusively to LEDs sometime in the 2020s. We expect markets for low carbon technologies to remain volatile, but see growing opportunities in the maturing and consolidating LED and wind sectors.
