Summary
"Twenty-five years ago when Mathew Burrows went to work for the CIA as an intelligence analyst, the world seemed frozen. Then came the fall of the Berlin Wall and the implosion of the Soviet Union; suddenly, unpredictability became a universal theme and foresight was critical. For the past decade, Burrows has overseen the creation of the Global Trends report--the key futurist guide for the White House, Departments of State and Defense, and Homeland Security"--
Summary
A former CIA agent and creator of the prophetic Global Trends report has expanded the most recent report into a full-length narrative, forecasting the tectonic shifts that will drive us to 2030, in a book that takes into account global warming, the growth of a global middle class, a shift in economic power to the East and much more
