Mathew Burrows

Director of the Atlantic Council's Strategic Foresight Initiative and Author of The Future, Declassified: Megatrends That Will Undo the World Unless We Take Action. Former CIA, Dr. Burrows, counselor to the National Intelligence Council, responds to the role the United States is projected to have in 2030? Will we still be the so-called "world's policeman" or will there be other countries that will assert this power?

Global Trends 2030 is intended to stimulate thinking about the rapid and vast geopolitical changes characterizing the world today and possible global trajectories over the next 15 years. In depth research, detailed modeling and a variety of analytical tools drawn from public, private and academic sources were employed in the production of this report.
