Which of his theories were incorrect or ill-timed? In other words, did he “get anything wrong” in his assumptions about the future? Explain your answers with details. (30 Points)
2. Consider the major themes (lessons or points) put forth in our readings this semester. Choose one theme that you feel reflects the sentiment of much of the readings this term.
