GZERO Media and Citi Private Bank are pleased to present “Living Beyond Borders” with a special-edition podcast series, articles, and graphics that examine how our lives change as the world changes.

Episode 8: What to expect from Joe Biden’s Presidency

Listen: It was an election for the history books in many ways, with record voter turnout during an unprecedented global health crisis.

In our latest episode of Living Beyond Borders, we're examining what the election results mean to the US, the world, and your wallet. From taxes to trade and climate change, our experts offer the facts and figures you need to know as America prepares for the Inauguration of the 46th President.

In geopolitical circles it's known as "decoupling," a move toward a creation of separate systems for the US and China, particularly when it comes to technology. It's the biggest global shift since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and has wide-ranging implications that could leave other nations stuck in the middle--or forced to choose sides.

Listen: Have you ever heard of Blue Zones? They're communities all around the globe—from Sardinia to Okinawa to Loma Linda, CA—where residents exceed the average human lifespan by years, and even decades. While they've been studied for the lessons we can learn about health, lifestyle, and environment, you don't have to live in a Blue Zone to experience increased longevity. It's happening everywhere. In fact, the number of people over 80 is expected to triple by 2050, reaching nearly half a billion.
