The Future of Finance
By Patrick Poke
- I’ll start off with a bit of an introduction on what the finance industry is really about and where we are now.
- I’ll then discuss some of the problems/opportunities that we face now (as these will form the basis for future changes.
- I’ll go through some expectations over the short-term, medium-term, and long-term.
- Finally, look at some of the over-hyped areas where I don’t think we’ll see as much change as people expect.
To be what one is..
About Future Day
“Humanity is on the edge of understanding that our future will be astoundingly different from the world we’ve lived in these last several generations. Accelerating technological change is all around us, and transformative solutions are near at hand for all our problems, if only we have the courage to see them. Future Day helps us to foresee our personal potentials, and acknowledge that we have the power to pull together and push our global system to a whole new level of collective intelligence, resiliency, diversity, creativity, and adventure. Want to help build a more foresighted culture? Don’t wait for permission, start celebrating it now!” – John Smart
Future Day is a global day of focusing and celebrating the energy that more and more people around the world are directing toward creating a radically better future.
The Future & You
We all have aspirations, yet we are all too often sidetracked in this age of distraction – however, to firmly ritualize our commitment to the future, each year we celebrate the future seeking to address the glorious problems involved in arriving at a future that we want. Lurking behind every unfolding minute is the potential for a random tangent with no real benefit for our future selves – so it is Future Day to the rescue! A day to remind us to include more of the future in our attention economies, and help us to procrastinate being distracted by the usual gauntlet of noise we run every other day. We take seriously the premise that our future is very important – the notion that *accelerating technological progress will change the world* deserves a lot more attention than that which can be gleaned from most other days of celebration. So, let us remind ourselves to remember the future – an editable history of a time to come – a future, that without our conscious deliberation and positive action, may not be the future that we intended.
