The author, esteemed futurist Richard Worzel, offers several radically different views of the 21st century. In his article, Mr. Worzel presents the following five “wild cards”: China, the Aging Giant; The Re-Emergence of Cheap Oil; The Rise of Robots and Computer Intelligence; The Ability to Live Forever; and Old and Poor: The Future of the Developed World. These wild cards will cause you to read, pause, reread, and think—and inform your planning for that elusive future we all face.
