The Last Wave?: The Future of Civilization, the Us, All Enterprises, and the Individual!
This book is a factual think-piece description of a world future that can be expected over the next 30-40 years with some degree of confidence given the past and the present trends that we all can observe today. The reader will most certainly see this mentally when they read the small book very attentively. The contents are a result of an inspired and informational study of the world and economic, communication/informational sharing, scientific and technological trends I and the reader will have witnessed in their everyday life. The book's content started for me in mid-1979, and has continued until and since it's publish date of 2011-12. I originally gave the predictions and previous content in an oral presentation before the World Future Chapter at Ann Arundel Community College, in Arnold MD, in 1996 in which most of my predictions came true but about 8 to 10 years sooner than I had prognosticated. The ideas originally started for me with a little book by an author Shuman, etal., published in about 1971 about a coming deflationary deflstion in 1984 and which I had no belief. That was in 1977, but by mid-1979, I came to realize that it and I were mistaken, in that we were all going through an inflationary depression starting about 1973 to then and going forth. This led me to think and read more articles about the world and U.S. events that predict these types of events but along Kondratieff's 54 year period.
That was wrong, too, I have come to realize in 2011-12 that his theory has become shorter and if you read my book, and on your own, you can tell why. That's enough for you all at present.
