Dr Richard David Hames's Biography

In 1998 he warned of the probability of hijacked planes being flown into the World Trade Centre. In 2005 he described to a group of Wall Street bankers the patterns that would lead to a global financial crisis just three years later. In January 2015 he correctly predicted the election of Donald Trump in the US federal election. He was among the first to anticipate the success of Apple’s first iPod and Tesla electric cars. He also anticipated the socio-political conditions that eventually led to the Arab Spring and the release of Burma’s pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

 

He is now predicting the collapse of capitalism as we know it. Based purely on performance, Dr Richard Hames – Founding Partner at Hames McGregor + Partners, Chairman of the Asian Foresight Institute, an elected Fellow of the World Academy of Art & Science, and a personal mentor to Heads of State, CEOs and entrepreneurs - is one of our most distinguished futurists.
