The objective of this program is to share some of the emerging issues of VUCA concerning the global economy and some techniques that are applied in analyzing elements of VUCA. As national economies have become more integrated and inter-connected as a characteristic of globalization, the world economic systems have become much more complex. One characterization of this complexity is the difficulty in making predictions in a deeply uncertain world. Another aspect of the complexity has been the volatile nature of financial capital flows and the financial market indicators encompassing equity, bond, forex and commodities. It has often been observed in recent times that some economic problems can be analyzed from alternative perspectives that make the solution space ambiguous. Illustratively, views of fiscal stimulus versus austerity have differed grossly even among mainstream economic thinkers and policy makers.
