Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

When historians look back in 100 years time -- what will they make of the sub-prime crisis and all that followed? What links will they make between the rise of China as a mega-industrial nation, buying huge amounts of dollars, keeping their own currency low, and costs of borrowing low for developed nations. Of course we are talking about a wider issue than China, but China is a dominant force in this regard. The fact is that China's willingness to buy dollars and euros in the 2000s provided a very welcome boost for developed nations - providing a lot of money at low interest rates. Both governments and individuals took advantage of this to spend on things they thought were important at the time, running up huge debts, and driving these economies into a long boom.

What was the outcome of major showdowns between The Federal States of Europe and America through 2020-2030? How did the Union cope with influx of foreign nationals? What happened to national parliaments, laws, and cultures? Major challenges to the future of Europe lie ahead.
