Why The Next 20 Years Will Be Completely Unlike The Last 20
Let’s pull back for a moment and look at the Really Big Picture:
We’re facing a future in which the economic growth the world has enjoyed over the past century can no longer continue.
Over-indebtedness, mal-investment, cronyism, manipulation, and misguided policymaking have all certainly contributed to our current predicament. But the principal causes are much bigger. And much harder to address.
Simply put, we’re entering an era when it’s becoming increasingly difficult to obtain the resources we need — at the cost we need — to power the economic activity we need.
The trends of resource depletion, escalating mining & drilling costs, species die-offs, emptying aquifers, declining energy yields and the like are increasingly pitting the world’s 7 billion people (soon to be 9 billion before 2050) against each other in competition for the remaining biomass and minerals that make industry possible.
As a result, massive changes to our way of life are in store. No matter where each of us lives.
