Economy of the value of emotions
Our brains are not just right-sided (rational).
Our emotions thus have value, and are there to remind us that we are unique.
The more the world population grows demographically, the more the value of these emotions also grows, and there are many growth opportunities for companies that are able to combine branding that creates emotion and quality of customer experience, generating inspiration, desire and loyalty.
The number of Internet users in the world reached 1 billion between 2000 to 2010, and should grow to 6 billion from now to 2015 through the use of smart phones.
The number of connected Internet objects should reach 40 billion by 2020.
If e-commerce has already won significant market shares compared with its traditional competitors, mobile commerce already represents more than 30% of e-commerce in the United States and 80% of e-commerce in China, and thus constitutes a unique reservoir of growth on a world scale.
Finally the Industrial Internet (that we will develop later) will allow considerable productivity gains due to the optimization of the interconnection of machines and networks.
The on-demand and sharing economy
These are essentially the so-called quaternary sector whose products are neither goods nor services but new services incorporating goods, as well as the temporary provision of goods or persons.
This sector has seen a recent explosion due to information technologies and the Internet but also due to the unprecedented development of demand for services (e.g.: cloud, home services, rentals (Vélib, Autolib, BlaBlaCar, etc.), SaaS (Google, Sales Force)).
The Energy Transition consists in promoting growth and development while reducing pollution, waste production and waste of natural resources, while strengthening energy security.
Sustainable development is increasingly integrated into company strategies, and new products and services are appearing around the energy transition: energy performance, reprocessing subsidiaries, optimization of assets and resource management, algorithmic models, etc.
