These trends probably matter to other people too but if you're trying to make a living these days you have to appeal to 'business' (whatever that is). Perhaps that explains item number 2, 'overburdened public sector'. As though you could just wave your have and make health and pension costs go away? And perhaps by business responsibility becomes number 6, 'social cost'. "Business has never been loved, but there is a different tone, fueled by tech and edu." Perhaps most important is not the demographic shifts or the shortages of resources but the "Massive scaling of large companies" as evidence by "market cap of the top 150 companies from 2 to $11 trillion over the last 10 years [and an] average of 123k employees."
