Codebreaking our future - Deciphering the future's hidden order
Publisher: Infinite Ideas
Some of the greatest scientists, philosophers, and historians of all time have advocated the concept of causality, or cause and effect, the idea that we live in a universe in which every effect has a root cause and nothing happens purely by chance. Michael Lee believes that these causal factors – the drivers of change – present challenges for society, and that by studying the possible outcomes of these challenges we can understand, foresee and model the world of tomorrow. In Codebreaking our future he examines the structural foundations of modern society and provides an overview of the four major challenges that will dominate causal change in this century. Drawing on centuries of classic academic research as well as examples from contemporary scientists, demographers and trend-watchers, Codebreaking our future establishes the methods for predicting the future by studying the causal drivers of all change.
