15 years ago the CIA tried to predict the world in 2015

Here's what they got right and what they got wrong

Way back in the futuristic year 2000, the CIA convened a group of experts from outside the Agency. Their mission: to gaze into the near future and predict 2015 would look like.

The result was a 70-page report covering everything from the rise of nanotechnology through oil shocks and demographic change to the fate of the global economy. You can read the full document here.

Fifteen years later, how right were they about the future we are living through now?
Many of their conclusions were uncontroversial: water would still be wet, sugar would still be sweet, and ethnic and religious tensions would continue to drive conflict in nations where governance is poor.

But other predictions have fallen flat – such as the notion we’d all be eating cloned beef burgers, or that North and South Korea would be unified.
Read on to find out just what they got right and wrong about the world of today.

The Predictions...

  • Internet Revolution
  • Cyberwars
  • Biotech Boom
  • Rise of Russia
  • Korean Reunification
  • Fidel Castro
  • Population Crisis
  • Demographic Crisis
  • Financial Crisis
  • Global Terror

The yellow part sounds so vague that everyone could predict this.

I predict:

 

  • Vladimir Putin
  • Clinton/Bush
  • Strategy 2030
  • Drought
  • Climate Crisis
  • Commercial Space Boom

Clinton/Bush in 2030? Clinton's 68. She'd be 83 in 2030, even older than Sanders is. Or Reagan was. Providing she's still even alive, she'd most likely suffer dementia and would barely be conscious during the presidency. Putin is 63 and Bush is 62, so they wouldn't fare much better. 

 

Unless they ran on the ticket of being USica's first cybernetic president/Russia's first cybernetic president.

And it'd be about 10 years too soon for that.

Clinton/Bush don't necessarily mean George Bush or Mrs. Clinton.

 

Perhaps there will be a Johnny Clinton, and Danny Bush, new, young politicians of the young generation? From the old Presidential "dynasties."

 

The same can be said for the Kennedys, to be honest. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if we got another Roosevelt in the running.

 

We could even have another Tyler in the race.

Frankly, I think that he was talking about Chelsea Clinton (50 in 2030) and George P. Bush (54 in 2030) here. :)
