Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds by National Intelligence Council ( - 0). Translated by Patrick McHaffie ( - 0)


Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds is the fifth installment (published in 2012) in the National Intelligence
Council’s series aimed at providing a framework for thinking about the future. As with previous
editions, this report will stimulate strategic thinking by identifying critical trends and
potential discontinuities. It distinguishes between megatrends, those factors that will likely occur
under any scenario, and game-changers, critical variables whose trajectories are far less certain.
As the diversity and complexity of various factors has grown, there is
increased attention to scenarios or alternative worlds.
At a critical juncture in human history, which could lead to widely contrasting futures.
the contention is presented that the future is not set in stone, but is malleable, the result of an interplay
among megatrends, game-changers and, above all, human agency. The ultimate goal is to encourage
decisionmakers—whether in government or outside—to think and plan for the long term so that
negative futures do not occur and positive ones have a better chance of unfolding. (from the Executive Summary, lightly edited for clarity) ( Patrick McHaffie)

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I can MC this for you.

The MW is set up.

You might want to consider shortening the system-generated file name to something like alternativeworlds2030_nationalintelligencecouncil_128kb.mp3

Moving this off the Launch Pad and over to Going Solo.
