Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds

Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds | Systems Theory | Scoop.it
Global Trends 2030 is intended to stimulate thinking about the rapid and vast geopolitical changes characterizing the world today and possible global trajectories over the next 15 years. As with the NIC’s previous Global Trends reports, we do not seek to predict the future—which would be an impossible feat—but instead provide a framework for thinking about possible futures and their implications.
In-depth research, detailed modeling and a variety of analytical tools drawn from public, private and academic sources were employed in the production of Global Trends 2030. NIC leadership engaged with experts in nearly 20 countries—from think tanks, banks, government offices and business groups—to solicit reviews of the report.

Looks like a must-see if economics, financial future, and progress + propserity are on your watch list.

It's one of those, have to see it, don't have to agree with it, reports. (Aren't they all!?)

10 Body Hacks That Will Be Available By 2025

10 Body Hacks That Will Be Available By 2025 | Systems Theory | Scoop.it

In the year 2000, conceiving of a device that worked simultaneously as a handheld computer, portable MP3 player, satellite radio, GPS, and phone seemed like science fiction against the then-current backdrop of shiny new, brick-like flip phones. As witnessed with today’s success of the iPhone, technology advances quickly and without much advance notice if driven by market demand and commercial backing.
The next wave of the future could go beyond the technology we’re holding in our hands and extend to what’s embedded inside our hands. There is experimentation with bio-technological hacks going on today both in the lab and in an unsanctioned underground of fanatics that could result in body implant “upgrades” being as ubiquitous in 2025 as smartphones are now.
