The Greatest Challenges of Our Time

GCF’s approach is rooted in the risk analysis employed by Laszlo Szombatfalvy during his five-decade career as an exceptionally successful investor. This objective, scientific approach led him to conclude that the impacts of the great challenges of today – especially climate change, large-scale environmental degradation, violent conflict, extreme poverty and continued rapid population growth – are being gravely underestimated by political and business leaders, who are too often influenced by short term interests. These ideas are expounded in his book, The Greatest Challenges of Our Time (Ekerlids, 2010) which is available here for download as a PDF file in English, Mandarin, Spanish, Swedish, German and French, or as a printed copy upon request.
