  • While I have a gut feeling that Thurn's prediction may be on the right track, 5-year predictions in this sector are wildly speculative making 50-year predictions... Added to which I find the suggested list imperialistic - all UK and US based, so China, India and the Spanish speaking world - to mention some large blocks, but there are other smaller blocks as well - just bow to English-centric-education domination? Wishful thinking methinks! Let's not lose sight of reality. Look at where the US govt. is today, on the brink of chaos, do we really think we have got it right?
