Prediction is a dangerous game - the future never runs in a straight line from the present. Unexpected innovations and events will conspire to trip up the best-laid plans. But even flawed plans are better than ignoring the future.
'Future Files' is filled with provocative forecasts about how the world might change in the next half century. It examines emerging patterns and developments in society, technology, economy, and business, and makes educated speculations as to where they might take us.
But 'Future Files' is not primarily about prediction. Its goal is to liberate our collective and individual imaginations so that we can see the familiar in a new light and the unfamiliar with greater clarity, and to make individuals and organisations think about where we are going and to consider whether, when we get there, it will be worth staying.
