Futurists know that the easiest predictions relate to demographics, since people age in a linear way. The article didn’t get it completely wrong, although some of the measures are pretty far off.
|Ethnicity||White (40%), Asian (9.3%), Latino (40%)||Non-hispanic white (28.7%), Asian (11.3%), Latino (48.5%)|
|Manufacturing Jobs||16.9%||10% (500K out of 5M)|
|Crime||Less than 7406 “index”||about 2800|
Predicting the future is hard, and this guess is far better than many other attempts. Still, the more I see how actual predictions turned out, the more humbling it all seems.
