  12. How will we make this work for the 8 billion people on Earth?

The Hope For Clear Leadership And Stability Emerges

Ray - Don't expect massive change given our federal system. Policy and themes may set direction but there is only so much the federal government can do. States and localities will still have a lot of local control.  This balance of power ensures stable government.

Dion - Most organizations are extremely complex systems that make it hard for a single level of control to drive change.  The Influencer leader is emerging as the most effective agent.  Clear and stable leadership is key.  Servant leader is the model where we are emerging as the most effective.  The world is becoming a place where there is limitless opportunity and we seem to be evolving mostly on the technology side but not the rest of the other areas. 

David - Tech policy and relationships will change.  Europe and NATO wants to know how to work best with the Biden administration.  The last four years has seen a decoupling of Europe and American over the past four years.  A new coalition and community of digital democracies seek to bring closer ties.  This coalition builds on those open societies who like choice and promote freedom not oppression from technologies.

Constellation Research recommends that readers consult a stock professional for their investment guidance. Investors should understand the potential conflicts of interest analysts might face. Constellation does not underwrite or own the securities of the companies the analysts cover. Analysts themselves sometimes own stocks in the companies they cover—either directly or indirectly, such as through employee stock-purchase pools in which they and their colleagues participate. As a general matter, investors should not rely solely on an analyst's recommendation when deciding whether to buy, hold, or sell a stock. Instead, they should also do their own research—such as reading the prospectus for new companies or for public companies, the quarterly and annual reports filed with the SEC—to confirm whether a particular investment is appropriate for them in light of their individual financial circumstances.
