Time Horizons and Politics
Time Horizons and Politics
Kevin Deegan-Kraus
It is no solution that the biggest problems of today require us to take the long view, to look years, even decades into the future and create plans that will take sustained long-term efforts. But our systems of communication and governance seem to focus ever more on the near future, the next week or even the next minute. In this presentation we will look at the concept of the “time-horizon” and how we can use it to make decisions about what polices to pursue and how to pursue them.
