Predicting the future is rarely a profitable pastime as any honest gambler will tell you. I arrived at the World Government Summit in Dubai this week expecting people to lay out what might become of the world in five, ten or twenty years. Instead I found people grappling with the present. That’s understandable given the events of 2016, but whether you choose to take an optimistic or pessimistic view of the current state of global affairs, there is a collective diagnosis of the modern condition emerging. The open question is whether governments can find the right prescription for it.
