Scenarios for the future from the Rockefeller Foundation

Actually sort of interesting, although they carefully ignore the problem of concentration of wealth and power (although it is implied; see below).

Via:  Scenarios for the future of technology and international development



The scenarios are driven along orthogonal dimensions of “political and economic alignment” and “adaptaive capacity.”  If you believe as many do that extreme inequality leads to social rupture, then we will be somewhere in the bottom half of this matrix, in Hack Attack or Smart Scramble.  For example, many on Tea Party right simply want to get a Congress that won’t bail out California (or any other state).
