The study of the world's people communities and landscapes is a crucial tool in understanding what the world may be like. The Future People census was conducted in the coming decade. Its information was collected from every person alive in 2030 (or its “Information Age”). It analyzed the living situation of people by the community they live in and their professional, cultural, economic, educational, and social perspectives.
Consequently, The study shows us that every region of the world has been touched by this new socioeconomic era and that it will be a globalized world where every person is going to be known about by its professional and personal situation. In Asia, we will have an unprecedented movement from the periphery to the core. In Africa, the core will be changing as it will be improving its infrastructure and living standards, with the development of cities and the population will migrate to the cities to take advantage of its jobs, wealth, culture, and civilization. As in many other places, the dominance of the female population will continue to grow. In Europe, it will be a united continent, however, it will not be culturally similar to today.
In South America, as predicted in 2009, the population will increase (borders will disappear) and the continent will become more developed as we start to show signs of prosperity and growth. Mexico will be the center of a new prosperity due to its growth, development of economic, cultural, and societal perspective. However, the income gap between rich and poor will continue to exist in Mexico as it is in the rest of the world. Poverty and unemployment will continue to be the major problems in South America. South America is predicted to become a developed region and a major economic power, but will still show the same social and ethnic diversity.
In North America, the population will grow as in every other region of the world. Mexico and the USA will be the developed countries with many megacities. North America will not become a unified continent, but will have an economic difference between North and South. The United States will be a rich and democratic society with a large middle class and becoming less racist and xenophobic. The United States will have more of an American culture, although the interaction between the US and Europe, Canada, and Mexico will continue to grow. Canada and Mexico will be more prosperous with better infrastructure.
Europe, as in South America, will be a great economic power. However, European countries will still be strongly ethnically diverse as they will continue to be politically separated. The continent will be more united culturally, although it will be a less developed region than South America. Despite these major differences between the South and North America, as the result of its integration, the culture of Europe will become more similar to that of North America. It will not have such a huge cultural gap like that between the USA and Europe.
The Middle East will not disappear as a major political influence. Israel will be powerful economically and militarily. Due to its integration with the West, it will become more westernized and its culture will become similar to that of Europe, North America, and Canada. The Middle East will not be a unified continent, but will continue to be politically and culturally divided. The Middle East will be a major socioeconomic and military power, but due to its political and cultural fragmentation, it will be a relatively poor continent with major problems of corruption, discrimination, and human trafficking. Despite this, Iran and Israel will continue to be political and military powers.
Asia is the most diverse continent, but the developed Asian countries will dominate the globe economically and politically. The economic success of India and China will continue, and they will develop their borders and population. Asia will continue to be divided by religion, political and ethnic lines, but it will be the most developed continent with the fastest economic growth. The benefits of the technological progress in the last century will be distributed among its diverse nations. Despite the internal division, China, Japan, and Korea will still be one of the major political and military powers.
Australia and New Zealand will continue to maintain an extremely unique culture and societal makeup, but due to the ethnic, political, and cultural diversity they will be less developed than in the rest of Asia. Still, their growing economy and tourism industry will continue to grow.Australia will have the most prosperous people in the world, although many of the economic benefits of this prosperity will not be available to the rest of the continent. Australia and New Zealand will be the developed countries in Asia.
Africa is divided into 13 distinct countries. Nevertheless, despite its diversity, the continent will be the least developed as the economic and societal progress continues to slow down due to religious, ethnic, and political differences.
