Mathew Burrows - The Future, Declassified

In The Future, Declassified:  Megatrends That Will Undo the World Unless We Take Action, Mathew Burrows expands the most recent Global Trends report into a full length narrative that zeros in on the key global issues that will change our world in the coming decades. In the ten years Burrows spent at the US National Intelligence Council (NIC), he analyzed the biggest and most pressing challenges facing our world.  Most of his work remains classified, but this crucial study, which the NIC produces every four years, is not. Delivering a forthright critique on the risks of weak U.S. leadership in the face of such massive changes, Burrows details how the report’s findings can help our world face these impending challenges proactively and productively.

Mathew Burrows is the director of the Atlantic Council’s Strategic Foresight Initiative. He has served as the National Intelligence Council’s counselor and director of analysis and production for the last decade. He served as the intelligence advisor to Richard Holbrooke when he was the US Ambassador to the UN. After 9/11, he became deputy national security advisor to US Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill. He lives in Washington, DC.
