FORBES Publisher Rich Karlgaard provides real-time insights on the U.S. and global economy — from post-pandemic business trends and the future of work to the economic impact of supply chain disruptions and labor shortages, to the priorities of the Biden administration.

It's now on the shoulders of CEOs to consider digital fluency. Are we moving fast enough? How can we move fast enough without moving into chaos? Rich Karlgaard

 Praised by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and FedEx chairman and CEO Fred Smith for his insights, Rich is a thought leader that Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and national associations turn to for a reliable roadmap of what’s to come. Drawing from his roles as a Silicon Valley-based publisher for Forbes, a columnist for Forbes Asia, host of the annual Forbes Global CEO Conference and semi-annual Forbes investor cruises, Rich’s business-consultant-like approach helps audiences gain a practical understanding of the events that are rapidly changing their world and the impacts on business, industry, and markets.

 Rich is also a regular guest on the FOX Business network, the author of best-selling books on high-performance organizations, and a past recipient of Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award.

 Rich equips today’s leaders with timely insights that help them adapt to the era of technological and political disruption and thrive in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.
