Plan for the future for yourself and your children with Phil Ruthven,
Futurologist and strategist
Covers issues facing the world present and future, from: economic myths
to future populations, health & longevity, ethnicity, religion & sexuality,
to changing traditions & lifestyles, to war, terrorism & drugs, to education
& training, economic growth & standard of living, changing technology &
work culture, superannuation & retirement, to political parties & leaders,
natural resources & Australia in the Asian region.
Most of us don't think about the long-term future often but as Phil Ruthven shows in The Future for Our Kids, the future is an exciting place to consider.
This book is for realists and for optimists - also those pessimists who are open to argument. It covers a lot of change - past, present and future. It's meant simply as a guide to what's ahead - with context and perspective. Ruthven doesn't dodge the hard stuff. Wars, recessions and depressions, epidemics, the drugs scene, droughts and other disasters are part of our history and probable future.
Hopefully, they won't be as debilitating as they have been - and he'll explain why.
Mostly, however, the future brings promise that is more predictable today than it's
