What trends are worth watching as we start to enter an eventual weird, post-Covid economy? How do you distinguish real trends from fads? What really matters?
I took these questions on in my “Ask a Futurist” video today.
I covered a lot of stuff – fad trends like NFT (nonfungible tokens), Clubhouse and meme-investing which are all over the news, leading to the first real trend I’m watching – the acceleration of “FOMO” – Fear of Missing Out!
This chart pretty much sums up that world:
Then I get into some of the real trends that I think are worth looking at, including the emergence of the Chief Resilience Officer, digital twin technology, hospitals at home, lifecycle shrinkage, post-Covid medicine, the relationship economy, space repurposing, work back pushback, and the surplus surprise!
If you want to watch real trends – not hyped trends – this video is for you!
