About Asia Focus

  • In response to the great need for foresight about Asia, IFTF has launched the Asia Focus Program. Asia Focus research topics are large-scale, under-explored areas from which unexpected futures will emerge. It is part of IFTF's flagship program, the Ten-Year Forecast Program, which provides a broad scan of the environment and is a leading source of foresight for a vangard of business, government, and nonprofit organizations.

Why she made the list: This year saw a massive breakthrough for Ms Zhu's enterprise: last year she only had the use-rights to one trash can; this year she has control of three! What's more, in an earth-shaking development, she now possesses savings to the princely sum of 200 yuan! We estimate that, barring the unexpected, Ms Zhu is certain to fall out of the top ten on next year's list.

I forgot to say, the 《祸布斯》 is obviously a play on the Chinese for rich-list mag Forbes (Ch. 《福布斯》) so maybe do it as "Hobbes'" list, as in "a Hobbseian war of all against all."

They can elevate men from obscurity to national prominence within a week. Soccer Cleats can reward some politicians with national exposure and ignore others. http://www.soccershoesclearance.com/
