Maggie Brooks is our escape artist extraordinaire A good magician never reveals her secrets. But what about an escape artist? Here in Monroe County, we're blessed with one of America's greatest working escape artists — The Maggician.

The Coming "New World Order" Revolution: How Things Will Change In The Next 20 Years - A Kondratieff Cycle Perspective SocGen has published a fantastic, must read big picture report, which compares the world in the 1980/1985-2000/2005 time period and juxtaposes it to what the author, Veronique Riches-Flores predicts will happen over the next two decades years, the period from 2005/2010 to 2025/2030. Unlike other very narrow and short-sighted projections, this one is based not on trivial and grossly simplified assumptions such as perpetual growth rates, but on a holistic demographic approach to perceiving the world. At its core, SocGen compares the period that just ended, one in which world growth was driven by an expansion in supply, to one that will be shaped by an explosion of demand. And, unfortunately, the transformation from the Supply-driven to the Demand-driven world will not be pretty.
