“As world trade in goods as a share of world GDP has declined since 2008, services trade continues to boom. This talk argues that the future of trade lies in services, especially intermediate services, since digital technology is rapidly exposing services that were previously non-tradeable to globalisation. One name for this is “telemigration”, which refers to workers who sit in one nation but regularly work in offices and remote teams in another nation. Beyond the impact of digital, the talk points out that the other great 21st century challenges – geoeconomic tensions and climate change – threaten goods trade more than services trade.”
