Kaleidic Economics is a research outlet based in London that also hosted a quarterly business rountable from 2011-2014. We engage in scenario analysis to anticipate and respond to the future as it emerges. This website will publish the key indicators that we have developed, and quarterly reports that summarise our work.
Whilst the site is in beta all information will be made freely available to the general public and user registration is not required.
