Top international organisations including UBS and the World Bank have consulted Patrick Dixon on how to ‘future proof’ their work. Now his ground breaking financial and ethical discoveries are available to a wider audience in Global Change.
As the millennium approaches, everyone wants to know what the future holds. On an individual, corporate and world scale, how society changes will affect us all profoundly. Make the wrong choice and the results could be devastating.
Patrick Dixon considers six faces of the future in Global Change as if they are the faces of a cube. The world will be Fast, Urban, Tribal, Universal, Radical and Ethical (a new morality). He explains the practical results of these including everything from the hours in the working week to artificial pregnancies. From business planning on a company scale to choices about a personal pension, these changes will have an impact on everyone. Wealth, health, cultures, technology, travel, morality – all are considered in this major new study.
