This session seeks to explore how the extraordinary growth of worldwide demand in all transportation modes over the next decade will impact the U.S. transportation industry, its' practices, competitiveness, and financing and that of its OECD, BRICS and Developing Trade Partners. What are the opportunities to be seized, what are the challenges and what research gaps do these trends suggest? A macro-economic perspective opens the discussion and a transportation futurist challenges the technical forecast.
