Summary
"Twenty-five years ago when Mathew Burrows went to work for the CIA as an intelligence analyst, the world seemed frozen.

For the past decade, Burrows has overseen the creation of the Global Trends report--the key futurist guide for the White House, Departments of State and Defense, and Homeland Security"--
