Western economies are going to hell and there's no major conflicts to force us into spending more into futuristic innovations (unlike in the 20th century where there was WW2 and the cold war). I'm sure corporations will continue making minor innovations throughout this century but I don't expect much from government-funded researches.

You can't be serious Mike......think Kondratiev wave, but I reckon modern conflict has pitched up all sorts of technological pruck and I'm guessing it is a lot of top secret stuff, as was the case with previous conflicts, that only became common knowledge when prudence allowed, in other words, well after the fact, i.e. who knew about the Manhattan Project at the time?
