JCER, Japan Center for Economic Research, the Japan's leading think tank, predicts the global economy in 2060, focusing on digital technologies that continue to evolve and have a disruptive impact on the economy and society. We illustrate the results in series.

We consider the following questions.
(1) Which country will dominate the world economy in 2060?
(2) What is the outlook for economic growth if the U.S.-China trade war intensifies?
(3) How will emerging markets, Europe and Japan change their share of the world economy?
(4) How will the industrial structure change?
(5) What is the prescription for the Japanese economy to revive?
