One of the world’s leading think tanks claims that in future people will be healthier, wealthier and living with dinosaurs.
In the future teenagers will be living like millionaires in futuristic homes built for leisure-time and comfort with robots as servants. They would travel in driver-less cars and supersonic planes. Dinosaurs could also make a comeback around 2050 to join the euphoria, through DNA back-breeding.
The Daily Star reports:
As well as being wealthier, researchers believe we will have more leisure time and live healthier lives with killer diseases such as cancer defeated.
Adam Smith Institute President Dr Madsen Pirie even predicted the return of dinosaurs.
The findings read: “Dinosaurs will be recreated by back-breeding from flightless birds.
“Birds are modern day dinosaurs but they no longer look like dinosaurs.
“Deep within their DNA, however, will be information relating to the time when they did.
“A combination of selective breeding and gene technology will be used to give them the characteristic features of dinosaurs – the jaws with teeth the tail, the small forelimbs.”
The findings come as a report by tech firm SmartThings says underwater cities and 3D printed homes will be commonplace in 100 years.
Pirie also predicted that the standard of living will double, we will eat lab-grown meat and blind people will be treated with “bionic eyes”.
He said: “People will earn twice as much in real terms by 2050 as they do today.
“Many of today’s teenagers will be millionaires over their lifetimes.”
The report has forecasted an average economic growth of 2% a year until 2050.
Sam Bowman, executive director of the Adam Smith Institute, said: “Futurology can often tell us as much about the present as it does about the future.
“In this paper we have shown just how many of our current problems are on their way to being solved, not by changing people, but by changing the world around us.
“Dr Pirie’s vision for the future is an optimistic one that sees human ingenuity as the key to improving people’s lives around the world.
“The future often looks bleak because we focus on the negatives – but the reality is that things are getting better, much better, all the time.”
