This study, produced in collaboration with
the Berlin Institute for Population and
Development, continues the GfK Verein’s
series analysing economic and demographic
developments and future prospects. After
“Five Lions Poised to Leap? The Economic and
Demographic Potential of Africa’s Threshold
Nations” in 2012, it is now time to shine
the spotlight on Asia. “Asia’s Second Leap
Forwards” examines the rise of many millions
of people into the global middle class in what is
the Earth’s largest continent in terms of area.
