The New World Order

Cornish (2004) p.155 forecasted that in 2050 the world's population will increase to nine million and a new global order will emerge where seven billion people will be knowledge workers. The web will be used to host the new complex global order allowing the use of new technologies to advance growth in industrialization, hence driving the global economy with technology. Increased decentralization in governance will influence different cultures to increasingly accept diversity in the global community to strengthen individual societies to positively contribute to efforts to reduce global negative tendencies.
The people in new global community may still have negative behaviors but they will be more educated and will depend more on information technology to function socially, culturally and economically. The factors influencing the emergence of the new global order include technology, educated and knowledgeable workforce and increased access to the web. Negative human behaviors like war, crime and terrorism may negatively affect global events but such effects will marginal considering positive improvements. Reference Cornish, E. (2004).
