Personal Business Advisors - Our Future (Part 1)

REAL Issues...Insights from Uwe 'Unplugged' : Personal Business Advisors
Talking about our future in North America is impossible without thinking and talking about all the global developments and the effect these have on all of us on a daily (if not hourly) bases.

I certainly do not claim to know more than the next educated (subject matter)  “expert”, but maybe my conclusions are a bit different and (hopefully) NOT clouded/tainted by pre-conceived notions/wishful thinking and/or any political agenda (since I have NONE).

Having said all this, let’s go together and try to define our current situation as we face it today:

-       The entire western hemisphere has reached a standard of living that is higher than it has ever been before in recorded human history.
-       The Southern and Eastern hemisphere countries are successfully building a middle class –thanks to our outsourcing and offshoring- and therefore are continuously growing their wealth –chipping away steadily from the Western hemisphere’s wealth and dominance (economically/militarily and consumption ).
-       Global climate change is presenting ‘challenges’ and devastation we have not seen since the Middle Ages.
-       Natural resources (oil/ gas/ drinking water/ arable land etc.) are dwindling (and harder to get to) rapidly on a global scale.
-       The world’s population is exploding. The United Nations projects it to peak at 9,22 billion by 2075
