Why Predictive Shopping Might Be Bad For The Future

Why Predictive Shopping Might Be Bad For The Future | Estudios de futuro | Scoop.it
Harvard law professor Cass Sunstein presents some disturbing statistics about “predictive shopping” in his NY Times Op-Ed, “Shopping Made Psychic”. Unfortunately, Sunstein doesn’t emphasize the downside to his findings. Without sufficient critical commentary, it’s too easy to be too optimistic about the wrong way to build the future. Sunstein defines predictive [...]

Formlabs Believes the Future of 3-D Printing Is With Pros, Not Tinkerers - Wired | Estudios de futuro | Scoop.it

As an associate partner and managing director of Ideo’s Boston studio, Colin Raney’s typical day at the office revolved around designing drug-dealing robotsand gadgets that can read your mind. Raney spent eight years traveling the globe, helping the largest companies in the world solve their most interesting problems, and inventing the future. Despite holding one of the cushiest gigs in the design world, Raney recently decided to trade in his designer desk to join the Cambridge-based 3-D printing upstart Formlabs as their new head of global marketing.

Water-limited crop productivity (CLIM 032) - Assessment published Aug 2014 — European Environment Agency (EEA)

Water-limited crop productivity (CLIM 032) - Assessment published Aug 2014 — European Environment Agency (EEA) | Estudios de futuro | Scoop.it
Yields of several crops are stagnating (e.g. wheat in some European countries) or decreasing (e.g. grapes in Spain), whereas yields of other crops (e.g. maize in northern Europe) are increasing. These effects are attributed partly due to observed climate change, in particular warming.
Extreme climatic events, including droughts and heat waves, have negatively affected crop productivity during the first decade of the 21st century. Projected increases in extreme climatic events are expected to further increase yield variability in the future.
Crop yields are affected by the combined effects of changes in temperature, rainfall and atmospheric CO 2 concentration. Future climate change can lead to both decreases and increases in yield, depending on the crop type and the climatic and management conditions in the region.

Country-risk measurement and analysis: A new conceptualization and managerial tool

Country risk analysis has been a topic of investigation for decades, often focused on forecasting the risks to business profitability and assets when investing in a country. We make the case for a new conceptualization and measurement of country-level risk and introduce the Robinson Country Risk Index (RCRI), a tool which incorporates four broad dimensions—Governance, Economics, Operations, and Society (GEOS). Within this holistic macrostructure, the RCRI encompasses 70 sub-dimensions, 126 countries, and, at present, 8 years of data. Its ecological conceptualization, multifaceted goals, and embedded functionalities complement and offer advantages over other risk indexes. The RCRI addresses concerns surrounding the conceptualization and measurement of country risk and provides a dynamic new instrument for educators, researchers, and practitioners. (academic, fee)

An Economist Shows How Imitation Can Sometimes Beat Innovation | Stanford Graduate School of Business

An Economist Shows How Imitation Can Sometimes Beat Innovation | Stanford Graduate School of Business | Estudios de futuro | Scoop.it

Investing in imitation can have big payoffs for economic growth, and sometimes even bigger payoffs than investing in innovation.

A new paper coauthored by Chris Tonetti, a macroeconomist at Stanford Graduate School of Business, shows that some countries are being entirely rational by tilting more toward adopting technology than developing it themselves. In a separate paper, Tonetti argues that the same is true at the company level: There are only a few Googles or Oracles in the world, but there are thousands upon thousands of companies that can generate big aggregate gains by using the innovations from the pioneers.
