97 Words1 Page
For many years, humans have been smart enough to create technological advances for their own benefits; however, these advances have left a trail of complex problems. Homer-Dixon is concerned about the ability of humans to keep up and provide solutions to solve these problems they themselves have created. He identified economic, environmental, social, and technological problems such as environmental degradation, climate change, and economic recessions and instability. The “ingenuity gap” refers to the gap between the emerging problems and our capability to solve them. If the gap widens, it may lead to catastrophes that disrupt our lives.
