Lastly, since we are all subject to the mega trends that impact our world and shape its future, then those who take the time to analyse, debate and reflect to gain understanding the implications better are the once most likely to have the attackers advantage.
Some good news - urbanization is taking care of the world's overpopulation problem.
Bad news - Japan's recent economic stagnation was utterly predictable, and helps us understand what may be in store for the US.
The book is a must read for anyone making decisions. Every decision is just a bet on the future. Well then you better understand what's coming and why. One of my biggest pet peeves is politicians who don't understand cause and effect. They pass laws to correct perceived problems, and sometimes make the problem worse. This book can help all politicians and company leaders.
Yet it's so easy to read I think a junior in high school can grasp all the concepts presented. And this is the most important demographic that should be reading it. If you understand these concepts, you'll be less likely to pursue a dead end career, and learn which fields deserve your attention.
You must buy this for your high school or college student so they can make the best of your investment in their education.
Here is a quote from the book that succinctly explains its purpose:
“The importance of foresight and the inescapable need for more and better clarity about the future is perhaps paradoxical, for in a world of accelerating change, how can we see more accurately into the future than we do now?”
His workshops and training programs are also very well-received, as he is even more effective in person.
Morris offers a breakdown of each problem and utilizes models, charts, and graphs to systematically make sense of them as well as begin to incorporate design thinking for solutions.
This is a dense and compelling read for any background.
