Tärkeimmät tulokset

It is very difficult to make useful forecasts incorporating humans because of unknown unknowns. E.G estimating the impact of new technology is virtually impossible. Despite this it is possible to make simple estimates based on present rates of development and hence derive costs in future of key impacts.
