John Delaney: 2020 foresight

Trump’s inaugural cheers (and jeers) have barely died down, yet Democratic Rep. John Delaney of Maryland is already
looking ahead.

Delaney recently announced his bid for the Democrats’ 2020 presidential nomination.  His platform will focus upon “an infrastructure overhaul, tax reform and increased investment
in science and research.”

Just as Delaney is gazing into his own future, his vision also embraces long-range national goals for technology, “automation and globalization.”  He sees the make-or-break
potential of such trends.

Technology can “enhance productivity,” but can also “eliminate certain jobs.”  Our shrinking world is extremely vulnerable to grave “security risks.”  This all will require the acumen of 2020 foresight.
