Indianapolis – A new Hudson Institute publication, After 9-11-01: Long-Term Implications of the War on Terrorism for U.S. Business and Policy, offers detailed scenarios on the future of finance, customer behavior, trade, critical infrastructure, and the global environment for U.S. businesses and policy-makers. In 90 pages of clear analysis and supporting data, the Hudson Chartbook provides detailed scenarios for the future of the world based on three possible outcomes of the War on Terrorism: the War receding as history; the War becoming a way of life; and the War becoming a global nightmare.
“Our new Chartbook shows Hudson’s commitment to assist decision-makers with the kind of sober, systematic analysis not available from the news media or other sources,” said Gary L. Geipel, the Institute’s Chief Operating Officer and a co-author of the new book. “Rapid change and heightened uncertainty make our scenario-driven approach particularly helpful in the case of the War on Terrorism.”
Hudson’s publication examines a range of “wild cards” – future possibilities that would thwart even the most detailed business or policy plan – along with detailed assessments of risks to the U.S. economy and its energy, transportation, information, and food-supply infrastructures.
