'World could be plunged into crisis in 2014': Cambridge expert predicts 'a great event' will determine course of the century
<snip>
"Professor Nicholas Boyle of Cambridge University, who carried out the research, has pinpointed the global financial crisis as the trigger for the next 'Great Event'.
And he claims the U.S., with its waning economic influence but unrivalled military power, holds the key to determining the course and character of the next 90 years
Professor Boyle said: 'The character of a century becomes very apparent in that second decade, so why should ours be any different?
'Partly the timing has to do with the way we divide our understanding of human life and human history.
'If a century is going to have a character it is going to become apparent by the time it is approaching 20 years old, the same is true of human beings.
'Another factor is the sequence of generations. By about two decades in the generation that was really dominant in the last phase of the previous century has had its day.
'The future is beginning to be defined by their children who will only have lived in or have memories of the new century.'"
