Ms. Postrel talked about her book, The Future and Its Enemies: The Growing Conflict Over Creativity, Enterprise, and Progress, published by Free Press. She postulated that world-views should be defined, not by how they view the present, but how they view the future. Topics included dynamism vs. stasis in an open society, and the politics of the future. Ms. Postrel argued that the biggest threat to the environment, technology, and economic development is trying to shape the future in advance. She said that we should rely on creativity as opposed to conforming to one central vision as we deal with the issues of the next century. close
