An article by Peter Drucker looking at the upcoming 21st century from way back 1995, when the Web was young and I did not exist. Very interesting.

 

The Age of Social  Transformation

 

NO century in recorded history has experienced so many social transformations and such radical ones as the twentieth century. They, I submit, may turn out to be the most significant events of this, our century, and its lasting legacy. In the developed free-market countries--which contain less than a fifth of the earth's population but are a model for the rest--work and work force, society and polity, are all, in the last decade of this century, qualitatively and quantitatively different not only from what they were in the first years of this century but also from what has existed at any other time in history: in their configurations, in their processes, in their problems, and in their structures.

Definitely going into 90s Futurology!


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

A dense but prophetic essay.
