world as we know it today? The Financial Times set out to answer this question with
the help of its readers, reporters and a panel of judges from business,
academia and journalism. The resulting list, initially published as an FT magazine, encompassed technology, energy, aviation, finance, the law and, of course, people, including the power of women as leaders, employees and consumers. This free ebook not only looks at the ideas that created business today; it attempts to predict those that will create the business world of tomorrow – from cars that talk to each other to the disappearance of cash.
