Trends in Industries. News, insights for looking to the future

Isn’t it interesting:  Hiring surveys are usually a
couple of years out of sync with today’s realities
(same thing for salary information);  business
information and trending in articles in the
Economist or WSJ seem to be quarter by quarter.
Mergers and acquisitions are rumored for 4-6
months before anything happens, there is silence
a month before, and an avalanche of information
afterwards.

These observations might be combined with
the note on Rosensteil and Kovach’s book “Blur
teaching that news is of four varieties, now:
1. verification
2. assertion
3. affirmation
4. interest-group.

A. Sklover provides a thoughtful response to
identifying the next hot career field in his blog
post.  His six tips are worth reading, yet let me
comment on the fifth–where he opines that
it is not humanly possible to predict things
like this with high probability.  It is possible to
mention observations, (he provides eleven).
Here are relevant clusters–
a-Internet adaptation and exploitation,
b-Natural resource (multiple time human
consumption) re-use, optimimization, and
  management
c-Energy and food use (one time human
  consumption)
d-Security
e-Education, training and re-training methods
for meeting needs of future workers.
