On September 11th, everything about the future seemed uncertain. Three months later, many of the more extreme early fears have been allayed. But many questions remain about the future: Will the economy ever recover? Which of the changes brought about by September 11th will become permanent fixtures in our lives? How will the memory of the attacks linger in American culture and society? Paul Saffo makes his living at predicting trends in the economy, technology, and society for American businesses. This hour, one of the nation's most prominent futurists gives us a look inside his crystal ball at what America can expect over the next decade.
