8 Billion Humans and Crypto Chaos: Sunday Asia Briefing

World leaders and CEOs gathering in Asia this week will have a sobering reminder of the responsibility we have for managing the resources of the planet we all live on: the United Nations has chosen Oct. 15 as the day Earth’s population will reach 8 billion (more than double the 3.2 billion folks on it when I was born).
