Lone Wolf Terrorism Prospects and Potential Strategies to Address the Threat
by Theodore J. Gordon, Yair Sharan, and Elizabeth Florescu

We believe that a new kind of arms race is developing. On one hand, is the possibility of increasingly destructive weapons falling into the wrong hands, and on the other, the development of new methods of surveillance and pinpointing individuals with malintent. Will the methods of detection be adequate and timely enough to avoid catastrophe? It is often said that one of the major purposes of futures research is to provide lead-time to decision makers and the decision process; we have lead-time. We hope it will be used to reduce the threat we see in front of us.

Albert Einstein is supposed to have said, “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch and do nothing.” We hope we have done something with this book.

Escenarios de Latinoamérica 2030 El Millennium Project inició un estudio de dos años sobre el futuro de Latinoamérica en 2009. La primera fase de este estudio consistió en la realización de una encuesta con la metodología Real-Time Delphi (RTD) durante los ejercicios 2009 – 2010, y un segundo estudio RTD que ha sido diseñado para integrar los resultados del primero en forma de escenarios de Latinoamérica 2030.

Más de 550 personas de alrededor de 60 países participaron en el estudio durante un período de siete semanas.

El Real-Time Delphi ayudó a identificar algunos desarrollos con alta probabilidad y gran relevancia (denominados “buena apuesta”) y otros con relativamente baja probabilidad pero gran relevancia (denominados “sorpresas”). Adicionalmente, los expertos corroboraron el “ascenso” de China y el posicionamiento de Brasil como el país más influyente de Latinoamérica.

The State of the Future distilles both foresight and genuine wisdom for humanity’s common future – from a global, multi-cultural collegium of advanced thinkers assembled by the Millennium Project. A major social innovation.” (Hazel Henderson)

“Scouting the future frontier into which we so slowly moved wasn’t particularly challenging yesteryear.  Hugely different now; more so tomorrow, as this book reveals.  It is an eye opener: sober, challenging, exciting, appropriately scary.  It’s something you should read if  you expect to go along, especially if you would like to affect the route.” (Doug Engelbart)

Metodología de Investigación de Futuros (Spanish “Futures Research Methodologies”)
Eduardo Raúl Balbi, Editor

La Prospectiva o Investigación de Futuros ha tenido en los últimos cuarenta años, una vida por momentos de esplendor, en otros sumamente azarosa en la región latinoamericana. Los avanzados en el tema comenzaron casi al mismo tiempo que en Europa especialmente en Francia se desarrollaba esta disciplina. De esta manera, muchos fueron los pioneros y muchos más los intentos de incorporarla a las currículas universitarias y a los quehaceres de la actividad privada y de gobierno.
