Life after the revolution
Congreso; XIII WFC/XIII CFM; 2009
FAO - SAGPyA
The last 150 years can be characterized by technological revolutions that have solved key problems such as availability of products and labor (industrial revolution), food (green revolution), communication (technological revolution), capital movement (financial revolution). Problems are only solved when they become big enough for us to find profitable solutions. The current crissis (energy, financial and environmental) are therefore likely to generate new revolutions that may generate new crisis and business opportunities. In a world driven by these dynamics, there is allways a chance for those that are not willing or capable to be the drivers of new worldwide solutions. In this presentation I present a short interpretation of the last 150 years of urban development and postulate that any given situation may present custom-made alternatives for those that cannot lead the race towards new worldwide solutions. I base these ideas on well established game-theory postulates and present some applied cases that range from national to houshold economy.
