Winning the jobs war will involve dramatically raising the global standard of living and turning today’s “economic bystanders” into consumers. Perhaps the biggest implication of that mega-trend lies in the area of food production. In the next 50 years, our civilization will consume twice as much food as the world has consumed since the beginning of agriculture, 10,000 years ago. Alarmingly, few people are aware of the formidable challenge of feeding the world of tomorrow.

What are these technologies? What are their implications? What will this mean for you? We’ll explain.
