In this edition of Brookings Data Now: Millennials to dominate workforce in future; Tokyo and foreign direct investment; Chinese foreign aid to Africa; U.S. greenhouse gas emissions are down less than Germany's; additional annual investment required in emerging economies.
83 percent of Millennials agreed that too much power is concentrated in the hands of a few large companies.
About 5 percent of American employees are employed through Foreign Direct Investment.
Of this amount, during the same time frame, Africa received 51.8 percent of Chinese foreign aid.
This number is significantly less than Germany’s 26 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions per capita in the same time frame.
This represents approximately 10 percent of additional investment above current levels.
