Morgan Stanley’s internet and technology development forecast

Mary Meeker became famous as a dot.com era analyst alongside peers Jack Grubman and Henry Blodget. Unlike Grubman and Blodget she managed to avoid being thrown under the wheels of the bus, so is now the elder stateswoman of the digital economy.

  • How economic factors overshadow future predictions on technological progressMS Internet Trends 060710
