This title has 21 chapters which deal with those aspects of South African life, which will have a significant influence on our future. We have contributions from 70+ authors, ranging from politicians, to business people, to academics, to commentators. Each chapter is concluded by a flow chart which indicates where we are now, what the challenges are, and where we are likely to be in 2014. The title is less about making an exact prediction of progress and more about establishing a direction and the critical challenges that will determine the desired outcomes, the likelihood of success and what you must do. Government, in turning its attention to the challenges of the Second decade of freedom has engaged in a scenario planning process. Scenario planning is about creating 'memories of the future' that expand current thinking and broaden policy planning. To do this we identified a range of 'key driving forces' that are most likely to affect South Africa over the next ten years. We identified two major axes: 'global economic and political trends'; and 'social cohesion in South Africa'.
