ISSIP Congratulates Martin Fleming on Clarity of ‘Breakthrough’ Path to Inclusive Post Pandemic Growth

New Book Proposes ‘Growth & Fairness’ Agenda Among Business, Government and Workers as Key to Sustainable and Strong Growth

SANTA CLARA, CA, USA, September 28, 2022 / — The International Society of Service Innovation Professionals (ISSIP), the global membership organization advancing Service Innovation to better serve business, society and humanity, congratulates Martin Fleming on his new book, ‘Breakthrough: A Growth Revolution,’ for its vision and clarity of a path forward to strong, sustainable and inclusive post pandemic economic growth.

Fleming, the former chief economist and chief analytics officer for IBM, argues that conditions are ripe for a post-pandemic global growth revolution – if government leaders, business executives and workers come together to adopt a “Growth and Fairness Agenda” designed to break five decades of stagnating real wages, limited GDP and productivity growth, and declines in labor’s income share. ‘Breakthrough: A Growth Revolution,’ which presents Fleming’s detailed prescription for growth, was published today by Business Expert Press.

“Martin’s unique approach – combining deep analysis of current economic and societal trends with a rich history of the four major industrial revolutions – brings to life the key principles of his Growth and Fairness Agenda,” said Terri Griffith, ISSIP president. “We’re thrilled to share his vision with our membership.”

“I’ve long admired and supported the work of the ISSIP and its efforts to promote innovation and growth in business and society,” said Fleming. “Service professionals in particular will play a significant role in transforming our global economy if we are going to take full advantage of the fourth industrial revolution and drive more equitable and sustained growth globally once we enter the post-pandemic era.”
