In 10 Years

FutureImagine what the world will look like in 10 years.  In 10 years, it will probably be totally different than it is today.  Just like it was ten years ago in 2003. And just like it was ten years before than in 1993.

In ten years, here are a few things that could very well happen:

The retirement age will probably go up another 5 years.

The Iphone battery will be capable of lasting twice as long

We might see our first woman President

Wal-mart will still be the biggest retail chain. Their margins and their inventory will be even bigger.

The middle class in the US will be even smaller.

There will be twice as many Facebook users.

Online dating will be the best way to find a partner and get married.

The legal profession will get smaller. Fewer people will pass the bar and work at big firms.

MBAs will still flock to consulting and banking jobs.

Your airport experience will be entirely digital-the check-ins, baggage check, ticket swaps, everything.

Crowdsourcing and crowdfunding will be the norm, not the hot topic of the day.

Social networks will be video-based.

People will still be biased against people of other races, genders and socio-economic backgrounds.

Then, what will happen ten years after that?
