Mark Collins – The Future Alternative Tense

The Economist has some fun:


The World If

If Hillary Clinton is president
The first 100 days

If Russia breaks up
The peril beyond Putin

If a NATO member comes under attack
Article of faith

If lying makes your nose grow…
KAL cartoon

If the yuan competes with the dollar
Clash of the currencies

If the world introduces a “Piketty tax”
Squeezing the rich

If the Panama Canal gets a rival
Trench warfare in Nicaragua

Debate
The case for slower growth

If autonomous vehicles rule the world
From horseless to driverless

If an asteroid heads for Earth
Taking the hit

If India’s monsoon fails
A billion-person question

Post-war China, alternatively
Chiang’s China
