Economics

One World Initiative (OWI) is committed to building international economic growth through broadcast programming citing opportunities and efforts that encourage cooperative ventures among the nations, governments and corporations of the world. OWI produces interviews and documentaries with leading economists and multi-national corporation leaders and others.

According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), climate change remains the world’s most pressing economic challenges for the third year in a row. Other challenges cited were large-scale conflicts and economic inequality.

More than 91% of recent survey respondents “Agree” and “Strongly Agree” with the statement “Science has proven that humans are responsible for climate change.” Also cited as major challenges are “lack of economic opportunity, employment, safety, security, education, food and water.” according to the WEF.

Globalization has benefitted most participants, but the increasing inter-connectedness of global economies has created its own problems. Some are short term, such as recession, banking crises and credit crunches, which are generally of short term and self-correcting. Longer-term global problems that require strategic approaches include inequality, unequal economic development, poverty, exhaustion of non-renewable resources, depletion of the environment and inadequate regulation of financial markets.

All together, these and other macro- and micro-economic issues are best approached through collective strategies for investments and economic development by leading governments, corporations and foundations for the benefit of nations large and small worldwide. OWI’s global broadcast programs are bringing world leaders together in pursuit of economic growth leading to a greater prosperity for all.
