Steven Meyer graduated as a theoretical physicist back in prehistoric times when you had to do calculations using slide-rules and log tables. Never mind computers. He thought small hand-held calculators were leading-edge technology. He has spent most of his life as a statistician upsetting people with his conclusions. Today, his two passionate interests are cycling and how advances in science and technology have impacted the lives of people. He no longer uses a slide-rule to perform calculations. Rise of the robots, North Korean nukes, climate change, new cancer therapies, budget deficits and surpluses, trade wars. All big issues. But how will they affect you and the lives of your children? We search for answers.
