Join futurist Brian David Johnson for a conversation about the future of the American dream, a year-long project timed to overlap with the 2016 presidential campaign. National Affairs Series

Johnson, the first futurist ever at the Intel Corporation, is currently the futurist in residence at Arizona State University's Center for Science and the Imagination and a professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society. As an applied futurist, Johnson has worked with governments, militaries, trade organizations, start-ups and multinational corporations to help envision their future as well as develop an actionable 10-15 year vision. His work is called future-casting, and he uses ethnographic field studies, technology research, cultural history, trend data, global interviews and even science fiction to provide a pragmatic roadmap of the future.
