2060

DUE TO THE ECONOMIC MIRACLE IN THE POST-WAR ERA, GERMANY ENJOYED A PERIOD OF PROSPERITY. AS A CONSEQUENCE THE GERMANS GAINED 15% IN WEIGHT AND AT THE END OF THE 1950`S 5% OF THE TOTAL POPULATION WAS OBESE.
COMPARED TO THAT, 20% OF THE POPULACE IS AFFECTED BY OBESITY TODAY. ONE IN FIVE PEOPLE IS OVERWEIGHT AND GERMANY HAS BEEN THE COUNTRY WITH THE MOST OBESITY WITHIN THE EU SINCE 2007.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THE CONSUMER SOCIETY TAKES EVEN MORE OF AN INFLUENCE ON US? WHAT MIGHT THE SITUATION BE LIKE IN 50 YEARS? HOW MIGHT PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS LOOK? IN ORDER TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS I WILL ATTEMPT TO DIVINE HOW THE YEAR 2060 MIGHT LOOK.
