1 Analyst Report
IHS Global Inc and Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA)
September 13, 2013
This study explains and illustrates the important business role that banks play in the commodities
sectors of our economy. We highlight the size and significance of these sectors and review their
business value chains. We demonstrate how the role of financial intermediaries in physical
commodities is beneficial in providing businesses access to capital and related risk management
(e.g. hedging) services. We use industry examples to highlight the role of banks in physical
commodities and, while we believe the impact is significant, we have not estimated the overall
economic or consumer impact of this role as we have done in other studies. This report draws on
the multidisciplinary expertise of IHS Inc. The study has been commissioned by the Securities
Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA). The analysis and the opinions contained in
this report are entirely those of IHS Inc. and we are solely responsible for the contents herein.
The authors conducted interviews with commodity producers, transporters, converters, end users,
bank and non-bank traders and others. We also conducted discussions with our own internal and
external networks of industry experts. We supplemented primary research with secondary
research including a review of the existing literature, public filings and other accounts to
document our fact base and to develop industry case studies.

The Robot in The Next Cubicle: What You Need to Know To Adapt and Succeed in the Automation Age
Prometheus Books
August 07, 2018
This optimistic and useful look at the coming convergence of automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence, shows how we can take advantage of this revolution in the workplace, crafting "robot-proof jobs" and not fearing "the robocalypse."It's called the Fourth Industrial Revolution--a revolution fueled by analytics and technology--that consists of data-driven smart products, services, entertainment, and new jobs. Economist and data scientist Larry Boyer lays out the wealth of exciting possibilities this revolution brings as well as the serious concerns about its disruptive impact on the lives of average Americans. Most important, he shows readers how to navigate this sea of change, pointing to strategies that will give businesses and individuals the best chance to succeed and providing a roadmap to thriving in this new economy.Boyer describes how future workers may have to think of themselves as entrepreneurs, marketing their special talents as valuable skills that machines cannot do. This will be especially important in the coming employment climate, when full-time jobs are likely to decrease and industries move toward contract-based employment. He provides guidelines for identifying your individual talents and pursuing the training that will make you stand out. He also shows you how to promote your personal brand to give more exposure to your unique skills.Whether we like it or not, automation will soon transform the work place and employment prospects. This book will show you how to look for and take advantage of the opportunities that this revolution presents.

Business in the Automation Age with Larry Boyer
TAKE THE LEAD A Nationally Syndicated Leadership Radio Show / Dr. Diane Hamilton
October 22, 2018
After the start of the Great Recession, there was a lot of economic disruption. Banks were failing literally overnight. People would wake up and find out that the company that they were working for had closed and they had no job. Fast forward a few years, we’ve gone through a lot of technological change, and the idea of the fourth industrial revolution is starting to come through. We’re seeing many new technologies being developed across industries, whether it’s artificial intelligence, virtual reality, drones, or work in the biomedical fields. Economist Larry Boyer partners with business executives across divisions to help them anticipate and address complex challenges through big data and advanced analytics. He is the author of The Robot in the Next Cubicle: What You Need to Know to Adapt and Succeed in the Automation Age.

Leading Business Transformation In Times of Disruption: From Covid-19 to The Fourth Industrial Revolution
Digital Process Automation Live - A Virtual Conference / Proquis
May 12, 2021
The Covid-19 pandemic has reminded us that the emerging technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution are not the only source of disruption in business and life. The suddenness with which the pandemic struck has magnified for us to see the effects of disruption and the effectiveness of our responses as leaders, businesses, governments, and individuals.

The pandemic has also exposed both strengths and weakness of business continuity plans, changemanagement and business transformation efforts and the leadership behind them. As we emerge from the pandemic what have we learned that will enable us to harness the power of disruption – whether we create the disruption or not. How do you successfully implement business transformation efforts when everything is not only changing fast but shifting?

Business transformation must be about more than just targeted efforts. The enterprise itself must be included. Organizations must be not only agile the must be anticipatory. In this presentation we will discuss:

Exponential Change, Tipping Points and Disruption
Evolution or Revolution: The Nature of Industrial Revolutions
Strategy, Change Management, and Business Transformation Lessons for Leaders from the pandemic for future disruptions

Decision Analytics: Revealing Customer Preferences and Behaviors
World Economic Forum / Global Insight
October 22, 2009
This presentation was given at the World Economic Outlook Conference on 22 October 2009 as an introduction to decision analytics and predictive modeling and how it could be applied predicting the decisions of individuals, rather than aggregates, of people. This was before the days of Big Data and Hadoop so the possibilities are even greater today.

Of particular note in this presentation are the slides illustrating the additional power of adding local economic information to an analysis rather than relaying on more aggregate economic information. Small scale, local changes in the economy will influence consumer behavior and it's important to know that when launch products and setting prices, for instance.
