"What is a futurist?"

Apparently, I’m a member of “one of the world’s oldest professions.”


That’s from the opening from this 10 minute clip from the CBC in which I’m one of four futurist interviewed (one of the others being Faith Popcorn, who coined the phrase “cocooning” during a previous economic downturn.)

The broad themes address what a futurist does, how we identify trends, and what we think might come next in terms of energy, the environment, the automobile and other issues.
