ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the futuristic financial world order, as seen by David Murrin, chief investment officer of Emergent Asset Management. Drawing a parallel with the erstwhile Roman Empire, that reportedly fell in continuous attempts to secure overseas trade routes, Murrin seas a similar fall of the Western industrial democracies. His background and experience in geophysics enabled him to observe world dynamics and envisage a fall of the overextended U.S. market and rise of Asian economies.
