Living in a Hacked World

As a futurist I have consistently posted most of my forecasts on my website. I am one of the few to do so. I do this to be accountable and to document what I said and when I said it. 18 months ago, in March of 2015, I stated that: “For the next several years […]

Sea Level Rise is Now! The State of Denial is Eroding

Climate Change is real. It is happening and it is accelerating. There are many obvious indicators to see for anyone not holding a contrived political filter, those that still live in the rapidly eroding state of denial. Sea level rise can now be seen in the present, not imagined decades down the line. Entire new […]

Low Inflation and GDP Growth is the New Reality

Note:  This column first appeared in the Sarasota Herald Tribune. There has been a lot of discussion in the media about this economic recovery’s slow percentage growth of gross domestic product. It also has been an ongoing reality for years that the inflation rates in the U.S. and Europe have been, for the most part, less than […]

A Major Energy Transition Has Begun

[Note:  This column was originally published in the Shift Age Newsletter earlier this month] We are at the very beginning of the end of the fossil fuel era. The use of fossil fuels will continue for decades but 2015-2017 will be looked back upon as the  beginning of the transition from growth to long slow […]

The Wealth Inequality Election

Note: This is not a political column. Rather it is a look at the fundamental reason and dynamic that is and will continue to shape the 2016 presidential campaign.  As a professional speaker about the future I give speeches all over the world. The majority of my speeches are in the United States. It is […]

Looking Ahead at 2016

During 2015, I wrote and spoke about how significant a year it was and would prove to be. Many significant events occurred and several major trends became clear. It is these events and trends that will in part shape the world as we move into 2016. I want to leave the depressing and distracting circus […]

Why the 2016 Presidential Campaign is Unfolding as Expected

  I am not at all surprised about how the campaign for the Presidency of the United States is unfolding. Not in the slightest. I find humorous and significant that the politically oriented Washington based media seems so surprised at the significant groundswell for Bernie Sanders and the fact that, as of the writing of […]

The Macro Forces Behind Slow GDP Growth and Inflation in the United States

 [This column first appeared in the Shift Age Newsletter #36 ] Ever since the end of the Great Recession a few years ago, there has been much written about the lack of both economic growth and inflation. Much of this coverage mentions that the post-recession recovery is much slower than the recovery of past recessions […]

Elon Musk: The Edison/Tesla/Westinghouse/Ford/Rockefeller/Bell/Goddard of the Digital Age

I have been an admirer, yes, even a fan of Elon Musk ever since I first learned about Tesla Motors ten years ago. I state that because now it seems that Elon Musk is everywhere in the media – on-line, magazines, a best selling biography [which I have purchased but yet to start]- simply because […]
