LONDON, ENGLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 -- This spring edition sees The New Economy celebrate the world's foremost pacesetters of 2012 in the Innovation 40 - from Tesla Motors entrepreneur Elon Musk, to the unparalleled marketing acumen of Red Bull.

Innovation is widely perceived as the common facet that businesses require to progress towards a greater means of growth - whether that growth be financially, environmentally or otherwise motivated. As governments worldwide seek to foster innovations to further induce stagnant economies, it's more often those in the private sector spurring revolutionary means of progress.

The New Economy - as is customary - contains both perceptive and analytical insight into the leading concerns of present day. Jules Gray writes of China's efforts in its bettering of research and development, and why, despite being on the verge of outspending the US, it needs to liberalise its attempts at innovation if it is to cope with rising labour costs and rebalance its economy. In a special report, Matthew Timms interprets the US's disconcerting tendencies toward short-terminism in their dealing with nuclear waste, moreover investigating the future consequences of the country shunning a longer-term solution.

With Google having come under increasing scrutiny through recent years - most notably with an aborted antitrust investigation - Rita Lobo seeks to uncover the harsh truths behind the fluffy exterior of the internet giant.

This issue looks at a new wave of emerging cities set to offer retail investors impassable opportunities for profit. Here, The New Economy analyses - what they consider to be - the 10 most promising of these tier-two cities.

The New Economy also announces its Sustainable Finance Awards 2012 and the Smart Grid Awards 2012. "These awards are dedicated to long termism that we feel is imperative for the rebuilding of global economics and future stability," says Finance Editor Joanna Clark. "We've highlighted some of the best performers in building on fundamentals for the future, and wish them the very best in doing so."
