As co-editor Robert M. Whaples writes within the introductory bankruptcy, "The anticipated adjustments diversity from blameless concepts that may make lifestyles a section extra comfortable...to most likely chilling applied sciences that will strip our human dignity." Just as very important because the book's predictions are its insights into how we must always take into consideration an doubtful destiny. As stand-up comedian and social critic P. J. O'Rourke exhibits in his erudite bankruptcy on self-fulfilling prophecies, wildly fallacious predictions aren't constrained to the likes of a Nostradamous or a Karl Marx: even a Nobel laureate economist operating a billion-dollar hedge fund can lose the farm (and different people's cash) via an excessively convinced misreading of the commercial tea leaves.
