Life in the fast lane: brainstorming a business idea


So you want to start a business, but you're not sure what industry to go into, especially if a recession is coming? Well, you're in luck. Here's my handy-dandy list of the fastest growing industries, trends, developments and anything else I could find that's fastest-growing. I did this by pouring through piles of data and interviewing 11,241 scientists, academics and movers and shakers. (Actually, I just googled "fast-growing" a lot, but close enough.) In case it helps you with brainstorming, in no particular order, here's what I came up with.

Fastest-growing economy: China
Who says? Everyone. It's common knowledge, but there you go, in case you forgot...

Fastest growing segment of the leisure travel industry: Adventure Travel
Who says? Hey, this is a shock. The Adventure Travel Trade Association
