The DCDC Global Strategic Trends Programme 2007 - 2036

I'm trying to post this
"@stef said, "it's about time the readership of that report was expanded a little..."

Unfortunately, the MOD have decided against this by password protecting the link given.

However, http://www.cuttingthroughthematrix.com/articles/strat_trends_23jan07.pdf gives a link from which I've just downloaded a copy.

For some reason blogger is playing up with the result that the comment isn't being accepted.

For the avoidance of doubt, the following MOD link, http://www.mod.uk/NR/rdonlyres/94A1F45E-A830-49DB-B319-DF68C28D561D/0/strat_trends_17mar07.pdf, which used to be freely accessible to those who paid for it, now requires a password.

Here is a working link, http://www.cuttingthroughthematrix.com/articles/strat_trends_23jan07.pdf to the report that used to be freely available to those who paid for it.
