Fortune: 2015 Predictions
“No one does predictions like Mark Anderson, whose forecasts about the intersection of the economy and technology are closely followed in Silicon Valley.”
Technology and the Global Economy
“What I see is a conflict, or a contest, not between countries, but between business models. Just like companies are driven by their own [business model]… This is true also for countries, [although] people don’t think of countries that way. They think of them as having these energetic, charismatic leaders, and they make all the difference? Bull.”
Piracy Vs. Crown Jewel Theft
At Forbes.com Mark discusses the impact of cyber espionage on the tech industry:
“In the last few years, we’ve seen a continued exponential increase in cyber attacks, with different purposes in mind: … listening to military communications, stealing customer IDs, and taking the greatest secrets held by corporations & governments – their “crown jewel” secrets.”
The most important economic prediction
of the decade
“$50/bbl should do it. … And since this will change almost everything in global economics, it seems worth sharing… I don’t think oil is ever coming back.”
