Dr Oliver Markley’s work as a futurist is about preparing for tomorrow’s trouble today.
He gets a handle on what’s to come by sponging up data and looking for early warning signs of disruptive shocks. He then suggests ways of lessening the risks.
Dr Markley, 77, completed his three-month teaching stint as a senior fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) in May.
His course on futures studies was a module in the think-tank’s Master of Science (Strategic Studies) programme. The silver-haired don uses the metaphor of a bus journey to explain futures studies.
