Abstract:

Witnesses the demise of what President Reagan called "the evil empire" and the end of the Cold War. The Berlin Wall falls, while Wall Street's greed rises. Still, America remains a land of dreamers, creators an d optimists. With the hope of learning from the past, and the promise of the future, we can only imagine what the next century may hold.

A new world: The Reagan era witnessed the unexpected end of the Cold War and a welcome return to a booming domestic economy--but did events unfold too quickly to control? This program takes a look at the details and aftershocks both of the dissolution of the Soviet Union and of the yuppie capitalism that threatened to push the limits of the American economy too far.

Then and now : This program examines key moments of the '90's including the Persian Gulf War, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Waco Branch Davidian disaster, the current status of Afro-Americans and the phenomenon of celebrities created by the media. Then the program, with the assistance of leading futurists, looks ahead to some of the possible events and innovations just over the horizon.
