What The F*&% Is Going To Happen Next? Future Forecasting in Difficult Times - Top Stories #6



The Canadian Science Fiction writer William Gibson wrote in The Economist “The future is already here – it's just not evenly distributed.” Forecasters around the world heed his advice and look for pockets of weak signals that are poised to blossom into massive disruptions. COVID-19 is a case in point. In December it was a minor outbreak in a single province of China. Four months later here you are, contemplating another three months working from home because you can’t leave your house. You’re probably wondering 'What the F*&% is going to happen next?'
