Annus horribilis is drawing to a close. 2020 has been nothing short of a nightmare. The pandemic and the lockdown in its wake have seen millions lose their means of sustenance, and led to the Indian economy contracting by a massive 24% in the first quarter of the financial year—the worst among the major economies—and 7.5% in the second. This is not to speak of the many thousands who succumbed to the virus and the countless others who battled its ill-effects for months.
While the economy continues to struggle, 2020 has also been a transformative year for businesses new and old, to put it lightly. The big question now is, what comes next?
The team at The Morning Context got together to pull out the biggest shifts we see happening next year. Then we culled out all but the strongest six, the ones we felt would drive much of the evolution in business and tech. Part prediction, part insight, we hope this helps you make sense of the world in 2021.
