7 young technologies changing the world
Just around the corner lie advances in fields from nanotech and robots to fracking and 3-D printing that will reshape the economy and our lives -- and they could be as profitable for early investors as the microchip has been.

Kudos to USARogue, the poster I modified this from:
The Federal Reserve:
1) Is A Privately Owned Banking Cartel
2) Is A Perpetual Debt Machine
3) Has Destroyed More Than 96% Of The Value Of The U.S. Dollar
4) Can Bail Out Whoever It Wants To Without Accountability
5) Uses Member Banks To Selectively Lend To Hold Us In Suppression
6) Creates Artificial Economic Bubbles To Compromise Economies
7) Is Dominated By The Big Wall Street Banks and Corrupt Banksters
8) System & Personal Income Tax Both Came To Be In 1913 without our vote.
9) Chairman, Ben Bernanke Has A Nightmarish Track Record Of Incompetence
10) Defies Democracy By Its Very Existence.
The War on Terror was fought on the wrong shore. Recall the troops and redeploy them to end the suppression of Americans through Financial Tyranny, control and manipulation.
A reminder that if there was no Federal Reserve, yesterday's Dow losses would have paralyzed controllers and manipulators to some extent. I believe that's coming regardless of the fiat money pumping. The rich are an endangered species.
The present state of humanity suggests that anything we imagine can become reality so in your brainstorming please take time to imagine kindness, happiness and love.
The biggest issue with all of these things is simply this: Just because we CAN does not mean we SHOULD. I, for one, will walk instead of ever having a self-driving car. I also do not want every electronic device I own making decisions FOR me. Medical advances are fine. We do not have enough jobs for PEOPLE to do now. What happens when all the jobs are done by machine? People still need to eat, need shelter, etc.
Technology is supposed to enhance our lives, not do it all for us.
I don't need or want some of these technologies. Robotics and self driving cars, no thank you.
I can see the difference between the children of today and my childhood and I do believe some technology is not good at all. I feel as though the technology of today makes life to easy and we are losing skills that may be needed again because of it.
Clayton Christenson, the author of "Innovator's Dilemma" and the first person to coin the phrase, "disruptive technology", was my college commencement speaker. Absolutely fascinating. Besides speaking a little about some of these more well-known concepts, he also made some interesting observations about US foreign policy. He pointed out that when the US attempted to "punish" other countries with economic sanctions, like Cuba and North Korea, our relationships with those countries quickly soured and caused further economic and diplomatic decline. But when we decided to be open and forgiving with "hostile" countries, like Japan after WW2, both economic and diplomatic relations improved dramatically.
