Abstract

Turning what we think we know about the future into public policy is not easy. This chapter delves, if shallowly, into this contentious topic. Specific focuses of the chapter are technology assessment (with autonomous vehicles as a running example), the roles and limitations of free markets, and sustainability. The chapter discusses the disruptive impacts of wild cards and black swans.
