Democracy or Oligarchy

The trends that I monitor to predict the future are driven by: 1. competition for resources, 2. technology, 3. demographics, and 4. governance. This article will focus on governance because that's what's been on my mind this month. The question is how are we going to govern ourselves?

A Year for the History Books

It's hard to believe it was just over a year ago (March 10, 2020) that Michigan announced its first two confirmed cases of Coronavirus.  Fast forward a year and it is hard to remember the world as we knew it before we had ever heard of Coronavirus.
