Creating anticipatory intelligence is nothing else than deciphering the dynamics of the world…

What will happen to us in the future? How shall we fare, collectively and individually? How can we improve how we deal with the future? How shall we cope with various dangers, pressures but also opportunities? Which are those issues, how do they evolve and what to expect next? Welcome to the website of The Red (Team) Analysis Society.
