Podcast #45: The Post Covid-19 Future, Part 2, Economics and Investing with Jim Lee

“The main purpose of the stock market is to make fools of as many men as possible.”–Bernard Baruch

 

For all the pain, suffering, sickness in death, all we have to look forward to if we survive the pandemic, is the worst global economy since the 1930’s.  Does one need a financial analyst or a psychoanalyst?  Many of us may need both.

I can’t recommend a psychoanalyst, but I can recommend an investment analyst.  Jim Lee stands out from the myriad of talking heads on cable business news channels, because he is also a professional futurist.  He’s a fellow member of the Association of Professional Futurists, and he joins me for episode #45 to take the long and short view of the post-COVID economic future, from next several months through the next several decades.

Podcast #44: The Post Covid-19 Future, Part 1, Urban and Social Issues with Cindy Frewen

“If a severe pandemic materializes, all of society could pay a heavy price for decades of failing to create a rational system of health care that works for all of us.”–Irwin Redlener

There is no doubt about it.  The after-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will be with us for many years into the future.  Healthcare. Economics. Social Interaction. Sports. Politics. Education.  Just about everything will feel the effects for the rest of most of our natural lives.

In this, the first of a series looking at various scenarios for a post-pandemic world, we look at urban and social issues.  Dr. Cindy Frewen is well qualified to discuss both of these areas. She is a fellow member of the Association of Professional Futurists–she served as its board chair for many years.  She is an architect, has a Ph. D. in communication, and teaches social change in the University of Houston’s graduate foresight program.  She also was a columnist for the Kansas City Star for many years.

Podcast #42: Going to Mars, featuring Moriba Jah

“I want to die on Mars–just not on impact.”–Elon Musk

“I am convinced that humans need to leave earth.”–Stephen Hawking

Mars One–not as good an idea as some thought.

Elon Musk and the late Stephen Hawking are not alone in their calls for humanity to become a multi-planetary species.  But they certainly are the most  visible advocates for space colonization.  And while the moon might be the most obvious jumping off point to the solar system and beyond, nothing stands out as a potential site for long term settlement more than Mars.

But just how realistic is sending astronauts to the Red Planet anytime soon–let alone colonizing it permanently?  The obstacles are many, and aerospace engineering may well be the least of them.  The human biological, psychological tolls and survival strategies–radiation, low gravity, isolation and the marshalling air, water, and food resources–all stand in the way.   And then there is the economic cost and the political and public will.  In this edition of Seeking Delphi,™ I talk to former NASA Mars mission navigator, Moriba Jah, about the many challenges of leaving of our home planet.

Podcast #41: After Shock and the Legacy of Alvin Toffler, with Jerome Glenn and Andrew Curry

“Future shock is a sickness that comes from too much change in too short a time.”–Alvin Toffler

 

The newly released volume, After Shock, features 50 of the world’s most renowned futurists reflecting on the 50-year legacy of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock, and looking ahead to the next 50 years.  In this episode recorded just a few days after the book’s release, two of the contributing essayists, Jerome Glenn and Andrew Curry, discuss with me their views on the legacy of Toffler and Future Shock.   Below are links to the audio podcast as well as to the unedited YouTube video of the original webinar.

The day I read Future Shock, just a couple of years after it came out, was the day that started me on the course to becoming a futurist.  Here’s what I wrote on this blog when Toffler died in July of 2016.

The most common question that I get asked, when I tell somebody I’m a futurist, is “what is a futurist?”  From now on, I’ll tell them to listen to this podcast.  From the Association of Professional Futurists annual meeting, Seattle, Washington, July 27, 2017.
