US Intelligence over de wereld van 2030

Speculeren over hoe de wereld in 2030 er uit zou kunnen zien blijft interessant. The National Intelligence Council van de VS publiceerde Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds, "intended to stimulate thinking about the rapid and vast geopolitical changes characterizing the world today and possible global trajectories during the next 15-20 years.”

Het rapport ziet 4 trends, ik citeer de website Kurzweil:
Individual empowerment owing to poverty reduction and a huge growth of the global middle class, greater educational attainment, better health care, and widespread exploitation of new communications and manufacturing technologies. Enabled by communications technologies, power will shift toward multifaceted and amorphous networks that will form to influence state and global actions.
Diffusion of power among countries will have a dramatic impact by 2030.
Demographic Patterns: key trends will be aging, migration and urbanization
Growing Food, Water, and Energy Nexus
