The Scarcity Economy Logo_Final
Header Color Block@2x

Scarcity. Shortages. Delays. Resignations. It is clear that the difficulty in obtaining both products and people has become part of daily life. What is less clear is whether businesses are prepared for an environment in which scarcity replaces abundance and whether this is a fundamental change or a temporary imbalance. Who is leading the way forward?

World 50, G100, Procurement Leaders and EHIR exist to help executives discover better ideas, share valuable experiences and build relationships that make a lasting impact. To help members address the questions above, we offer The Scarcity Economy.

This project—which stems from a survey of 239 group members conducted in December, along with 23 in-depth member interviews—consists of this website, a PDF, a podcast series and downloadable slides segmented by industry and size, with raw data. Certain elements of this project are available exclusively to members of the World 50, G100, Procurement Leaders and EHIR communities.

Founded in 2004, World 50 consists of private peer communities that enable CEOs and C-level executives from globally respected organizations to discover better ideas, share valuable experiences and build relationships that make a lasting impact. The busiest officer-level executives and their most promising future leaders trust World 50 to facilitate collaboration, conversation and counsel on the topics most crucial to leading, transforming and growing modern enterprises. World 50 communities serve every significant enterprise leadership role. World 50 members reside in more than 27 countries on six continents and are leaders at companies that average more than US$30 billion in revenue. World 50 is a private company that serves no other purpose than to accelerate the success of its members and their organizations. It is composed of highly curious associates who consider it a privilege to help leaders stay ahead.

With the recent additions of G100, Procurement Leaders, and EHIR, World 50 has positioned itself to serve leaders across all senior leadership roles, functions and geographies.
