An exercise in Future Forecasting comes into view. We take a concept from our “Invention Day” last Sunday and explore whether we can make a reasonable future forecast based on changing differential growth rates.
If that sounds daunting, don’t run away and hide. Because, dear reader, you too are living in the Land of More.
This has not only driven our selection of an economic system (grow or die) but also as structural limits to “Moreness” come into view, we will have additional future change to cope with.
Maybe, at the end of the day, economist Lester Thurow will be more right than wrong in his book “The Zero-Sum Society: Distribution And The Possibilities For Change.”
This will be an especially useful report for people trying to break out of the perceptual trap “Understanding only through contrast.”
After a few headlines and the chart stack, as well.
