What will be President Trump's longer term impact on America, global politics, news reporting, future of democracy itself. Why he fits many predictions I made and what is likely to happen next to political leadership globally. FEATURE

President Trump is very typical of a new generation of "single-issues politicians", rising up around the world as I predicted years ago

He thrives on the elusive powers of 24 hours a day media-streaming of his thoughts and feelings, taps into populist emotions, connects with the passions of ordinary people, expresses very well their fears for their own future, as well as their dreams for their own children.

A part of this has been the powerful slogan: "Make America Great Again", which feeds into deep unease about the declining role, influence and economic powers of America as a proportion of the whole world.  This in turn is being driven by the very long term, irresistible and relentless rise in emerging nations, where 85% of humanity already live.

Leaving aside whatever you may feel about President Trump's official, longer term policies, the truth is that his day to day communications and actions are massively different from what is normally expected in developed nations of their own Presidents or Prime Ministers, and are much more typical in some ways of patterns that we tend to see amongst semi-dictators in emerging markets....

How to predict life in the year 2100. New edition of The Future of Almost Everything book coming soon. Keys to very long term trends based on my Futurist keynotes for 400 large corporations over 25 years. VIDEO and POST

My job is to live in the future and to see tomorrow as history.

NOTE: book now published!

I'm working on a new edition of The Future of Almost Everything book - which will contain a chapter on life in 2100, looking at key trends for the next 20 years, in the light of what happened from 2090 to 2100...

Forecasting 80 years ahead might seem an impossible thing to do.

So what happens if you live for a while in 2100 and return to tell the story, to make comparisons?  In what ways are you most "culture shocked" and why?

It is easy to assume that life will continue to change at frenetic pace, and that many things will be almost unrecognisable by 2100, but will that really turn out to be true?

Winston Churchill once said that if you want to understand the future, look at history.

80 years ago, in 1948 was in many ways a very different world - with rapid reconstruction in Europe after the Second World War. Yet more things have endured than we might think....

Just published - my AudioBook of The Future of Almost Everything.  Click here to listen to a sample.  Download entire AudioBook from Audible for free! I recorded the entire book myself: every key message I have given recently to CEOs and business leaders around the world, from every industry, and in every region, about urgent issues, challenges and opportunities facing us in the next 20-50 years.

Future of Artificial Intelligence. How AI will change jobs, manufacturing and health. Impact of AI on marketing, investment, banking, insurance, politics, government, warfare, consumer choices and how people think. Artificial Intelligence FEATURE

Artificial Intelligence is about a world dominated by smart machines, more intelligent than humans, becoming more powerful every day. But how will that AI power be used? Is AI a force for good or for evil?  Will robots ever achieve full human consciousness, or "real" intelligence, or will they just remain smart machines?

Will Artificial Intelligence create massive unemployment, combined with Robotics? Will society become controlled by AI systems?

Here is the truth in a lengthy feature about Artificial Intelligence in the auto industry, health care AI, warfare AI, impact of AI on banking, investments, insurance, retail, surveillance and security, workplace and so on. This is based on keynotes on the future of Artificial Intelligence and related issues, across the world.

Future of FinTech, Banks and Financial Services Trends - Futurist Keynote Speaker on FinTech Innovation, mobile payments, Banking, Insurance and Personal Finance - FEATURE

I have worked with many of the largest banks and insurers in the world over the last 20 years, and all of them are focussed right now on the threat and opportunity of FinTech innovation.

Very simply: FinTech will cause as radical changes to banking and payments as the web has caused to the whole of society. Combine the gigantic power of the web and mobile tech with the profits of the entire financial sector worldwide, and you get one of the greatest opportunities to create digital wealth that the world has ever seen.

That's one reason why FinTech is one of the fastest growing areas of IT innovation with over $18bn invested a year.  In the first 3 months of 2017, Global FinTech startups raised $2.78n of investment from global venture capital firms, in 226 separate deals. In London alone there are probably over 10,000 FinTech startups - it is hard to keep track of the frenetic pace of change in this sector.

Why is FinTech so important?

FinTech combines all the power of the web, the potential of mobile transactions, the capabilities of cloud-computing, of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data analytics, and all the potential of mega-sized IT platforms, to completely transform how money is stored and transferred, globally.

Why future wars will be radically different: Hybrid Conflicts, Civil Chaos, Cyberattacks, Border Disputes. Impact on defence spending, Superpowers Military Strategy - keynote speaker - FEATURE

A few years ago, I gave a lecture to the Pentagon (USPACOM), on how to reduce risks of future wars and reduce international tensions. It was one of the toughest assignments I can remember.

Our world spends over $1.8 trillion every year on weapons and other defence costs, or 2.5% of global GDP, down from 4% in the last days of the Cold War, equivalent to $250 per person on earth. Combined sales of the largest 100 arms companies is around $320 billion a year - yet most of it is completely irrelevant to the conflicts of the future.

40% of all global military spending is by one nation alone: America, which burns up more in this way than the next 15 highest-spending nations combined. This is a truly spectacular imbalance of military fire-power, and will be unsustainable in the longer term as we will see.  America only needs to spend 3% of GDP on arms to achieve such dominance – compared to Russia which today spends 4% of a much smaller economy, China 2%, India 2%, UK 2%, France 2%, Israel 6%, Saudi Arabia 9% and Oman 12%.... But how do we ensure world peace?....

Next Financial miss-selling crisis? Future of Fund Management. Why most fund managers I talk to do not recommend their own retail actively managed funds. Impact on Future of Banking and Pension Funds. Fund Management Keynote Speaker - POST and VIDEO

Video from 2010 but JUST as urgent and relevant today.

Fund management really matters - as vital to society as hospitals and schools because it protects the wealth of us all as pensioners. For many years, I have given keynotes on global investment trends to Fund Managers from across the world.  I have had over $1 trillion of funds under management of a single audience. But here is a shocking fact. A significant proportion of fund managers (usually the great majority) at events I have spoken at over the last few years lack confidence in their own actively managed investment funds.  For example, most tell me (straw polling during presentations) that they do not recommend their own products to friends and family, and do not commit their own wealth into their own funds unless they need to as part of the job. If fund managers do not believe they are adding value, it becomes a serious ethical issue if those retail funds continue to be actively marketed.  Life is too short to sell things you don’t believe in. So what is the future of actively managed funds?...
