The World Economic Forum has some startling predictions for the world in 2030. In their article ‘8 predictions for the world in 2030,’ they cover a range of topics from the environment to technology. They even have a follow-up article on Forbes titled “Welcome To 2030: I Own Nothing, Have No Privacy And Life Has Never Been Better.”

It’s not that the WEF is a Dr. Evil-esque Orwellian organization full of super villains, they just have a really warped way of looking at the world.

In the words of WEF chairman Klaus Schwab at 2022’s meeting, “The future is not just happening. The future is built by us, by a powerful community as you here in this room,” Schwab said addressing this year’s guests.

If their article “8 predictions for the world in 2030” is anything to go by, here is what our future will look like.

1. All products will have become services

“I don’t own anything. I don’t own a car. I don’t own a house. I don’t own any appliances or any clothes,”

— Danish Politician Ida Auken describing the WEF’s vision

According to the WEF, by 2030 we’ll all be using products as services. So instead of buying a car, you’ll pay to rent one when you need it. And instead of owning a house more of us will live in shared apartments.

This becomes all the more terrifying now that investment bank Black Rock is buying up real estate all over the world so they can offer “housing as a service.”

It’s not all bad news though. The WEF predicts that we’ll have more free time because we won’t have to spend it working to pay for all our stuff.

But to me, the loss of ownership doesn’t sound like a net gain.

Oligarchs will still own everything.

2. There is a global price on carbon

Ayy the carbon tax! It’s a progressive way to make sure that the people who can afford to pay more, do.
