The Market of XYZ

For the moment, please indulge me a level of opacity.  I want to present a very large and highly respected market segment of the US economy in abstraction.   In the last 50 years, the XYZ marketplace has become ever more central to the US.  It has become the envy of the world.  People from […]

Taking Stock – National and Global Forecasts

The last five months, since America and the world entered into a lock down to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, have been completely unique and devastating. It is time to look back at the forecasts I made during 2020 to see not just what was correct, but to alter and update forecasts as […]

The 2020s: The Most Disruptive Decade in History – Part 2

  In an earlier post, I introduced this latest book of mine.  Since then the sales have been strong and the reader feedback all positive.  This has led to a number of interviews, podcasts and the creation of some short videos about the book which I would like to share here with you.

That thought created the realities of the past and present that are now collapsing in an accelerated fashion. What was, what reality was, what […]

Will Trump “drop the mic” in August?

In this polarized country it is now necessary to state that this is not a political column. As the tag line above suggests, this is a future look at today. All my forecasts or suggested probabilities are based upon data, trend lines and (to a lesser degree) history. When making forecasts that are less than […]

The 2020s: The Most Disruptive Decade in History

  This is the title of my latest book, published last week. It is the first of a planned series of books about this new decade… as I believe the 2020s will shape the trajectory of at least the next 40 years, if not the entire century. This decade is one of those historic transitions […]

The Futurist Becomes the Canary in the Mine

[Note: this column was just published in Medium  a great place for thoughtful commentary.  Please follow me there as well as here.  Thank you!] In 2015–2016 I stood down from traveling around the world speaking about the future to publish a book on climate change and then to set up a global non-profit  to create […]

Baby Boomers and COVID-19

In the ample time available these days, one thinks of lots of things. Reflections on the future, of course, but also about this entire experience we are sharing.   We all have had the feeling, when going through a situation, that there was something vaguely familiar with the experience.
