Structural, political, and societal changes can be executed instantaneously in a fourth turning. I'm looking for any theories on how these changes will develop, and what the world will look like when the dust has cleared and we push on into the recovery (1T). Look at trend lines, technological breakthroughs, types of warfare, economic consequences, etc.

There will be fewer currencies and more international regulation of trade. I think there will be a significant clash between islamics and non-islamics on a global scale. I think this will be the basis of WWIII. I think China will attempt to stay out of the fray, preferring to pick up the pieces when it is over. Socialism will be resurgent as automation makes unskilled labor less and less valuable, and more skilled workers are displaced as the pace of change accelerates. It will be necessary to maintain social programs for underskilled and displaced workers to prevent social unrest. Family structures will probably change. It seems that multifamily unions will likely be required to better accomodate disruptions in individual income streams, and to accomodate the need to raise children in a multi-income family. Two families with three workers or three families with 5 workers would be a more efficient basic unit.
