Three Approaches to the Future

There are three basic approaches of dealing with the future:

  1. The grasshopper: Do what would be optimal if you hit by a bus tomorrow.
  2. The gambler: Do you best to predict what is going to happen, the bet the farm you are right.
  3. The boy scout: Be prepared.

Are Americans grasshoppers or gamblers the way they ignore global warming?
