“If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.”
Lyndon B. Johnson
This table of stock market price performance over the past five years speaks volumes about how life is changing. Everyday fortunes are made and lost on the market, but it’s the human stories behind this transformation of the way we do things that matter.
There are two great driving forces behind these changes - the takeover by the digital economy, and climate change. In both areas, but particularly the first, the virus emergency has accelerated the change. As we sped through the awful milestones of half a million dead and ten million infected this last weekend, and as the word ‘rampant’ is now the only way to describe the virus’s spread in the United States and Brazil, it’s clear that the acceleration of change will continue.
So please READ ON .. as this week we consider the extent of popular support for these two driving forces, and what the contrast between them says of our care for future generations.
