Report Predicts Everyone Will Be a Sexy Millionaire by 2050

The Kinks one recorded a song titled ‘Everyone’s In Showbiz, Everyone’s a Star’ and the world’s greatest talentless wanker, Andy Warhol, predicted that ‘in the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes. History is full of failed predictions from the Oracle at Delphi through Nostradamus, Mother Shipton and just about every twentieth century stargazer and futurologist who ever found an audience.

It isn’t just psychics and fortune tellers of course. When I was young there was here in the UK a TV program titled Tomorrows World which looked at the latest technological advances and newly launched gadgets and predicted how we would live in the future. One famous prediction led us to believe by the trun of the millennium we would all be zooming around in private hovercraft.

Its 2016 now and I’m still waiting, where’s my fucking hovercraft?

“Britain and the World in 2050”, a report published by the Adam Smith Institute, predicts that teenagers will be millionaires in the future and will afford the same living standards that wealthy people do today. It also predicts everyone will be good looking.

Despite the growing gap between the rich and poor, Adam Smith Institute president Madsen Pirie predicts economic growth of two percent a year will leave the younger generation richer.

Machines will take over the production of food and clothes and will run households, suggest Pirie.

Look at the first syllable of Mr. Pirie’s forename and you get a clue as to the worth of this report. With central banks and increasingly the commercial banks looking at negative interests rates to restart the economies of the developed world we are looking at a modern version of serfdom as our financial future
