An entrepreneur lives in Future . So I try my best to observe trends and know it before everyone gets there and I am also open about what I think .
Long standing positions on Future :
2009- 2014 : I held the position that Asia (China and India ) will be the future soon .
2015 : It is China and Chinese thinking that will be dominant force in the world .Since Chinese thinking is nothing by old Asian thinking , India may rediscover its roots and align itself too.
We are heading towards opensource and largely non-IP environment where mostly everyone knows everything but the actual executor takes the prize.
I am just feeling a little prophetic today .Living alone has lot of advantages one of the ways I use it is to study trends patterns of things and how future would shape .
I think we are in the midst of a revolution a huge change :
Decentralisation of things :
1)Power of business shifting from large corporations to startups.
2)Larger corporations are trying to get leaner and smaller to remain efficient and survive.
3)Arrival of Bitcoin -decentralized currency
4)Arrival of Blockchain technology which will decentralise lot of systems including legal and eliminate power in the hands of politicians and rulers.
5)Power would be transferred into the hands of mass . which is socialism
5a)Women/soft emotional males or maybe even gays will rule :
Among the 2 genders men are power hungry compared to women so power may shift to Women /Gay men /Soft male characters .
China is already producing a lot of women ceo’s .The first billion $ startup in USA by a women ceo will shift the trend in their favor.
Countries/Organisations that already have such leaders must be studied for the policies they bring in , the clue of future lies there.
The current scene is dominated by very powerful personality types on the opposite side of the energy spectrum so we are in for a huge crash , a huge reset that will make the world want soft rulers to come back to power.
The most interesting trend of our times is the advent of Blockchain .This will be in forefront of decentralisation of things and who have has time to study it please connect and lets learn it together . I see it as the future of the world.
