The 21st century will be a period of unprecedented change in the world economy as new frontiers in electronic technology are conquered in ways that will shrink national boundaries and expand an already global marketplace. Where will you be in 10 or 20 years? Will you be downshifting to a simpler lifestyle? Will you be a "cyberhermit" working from home, communicating via the Internet and consuming by catalog? Join us as the Kiplinger Washington Editors turn their forecasting skills from the weeks and months ahead to the next millennium in this special satellite seminar.
