Today’s Prophecy: January 1, 2014

by platonicgap

Three recent positive black swans that have the potential to alter the course of history and bring the US back to global leadership.

1. Robotics: bringing manufacturing/exports back to the states. Google may be showing the way here, scooping up half a dozen robotics companies.

2. Cryptocurrency: cautiously migrating off of the Titanic that is today’s international financial system patchwork to digital currencies in a timely manner would be a wise move at this juncture in history.

3. Electric mobility: San Jose could become 21st century Detroit if Tesla Motors carries out its mission of achieving scales of economy in battery production. Added bonus: potential to help wean the world off its fossil fuel addiction and consequent military conflicts.
