In a recent television interview I touched on some points that regular readers will realize have been forecasts I have made in this column over the past couple of years. Over a short but wide ranging interview with Chicago Fox News Anchor Bob Sirott I touched on forecasts previously made about thrift being the new cool, the scarring of the consumer, a lack of inflation, high unemployment and the future of e-books.
It is my job as a futurist to provoke you to think about the future and to be as accurate as possible with my forecasts. These are the two things it is my responsibility to do. I hope that from time to time you find yourself thinking about the future in new ways when reading this column. Of course I take pride in my accuracy as it validates your time spent here.
I hope you enjoy this interview. Bob and I enjoyed the conversation enough that we plan on sitting down again in the future
