    All Things Considered The World in 2030 The nation's intelligence agencies have updated their report on Global Trends describing the world they expect in 2030. Western countries, which have been on the rise since 1750, will have declined in influence. Asia will be on the ascendancy, but no country or region will dominate, leaving the planet less governed. Power will be diffused, with individuals able to play more effective role, thanks in part to new technology.

    City Arts & Lectures Tom Wolfe Tom Wolfe is the author of more than a dozen books, among them such contemporary classics as "The Right Stuff," "The Bonfire of the Vanities" and "A Man in Full." Credited with inventing New Journalism, whereby writers acknowledge their own subjectivity and oftentimes employ literary techniques to reporting, Wolfe spent his early career in newspapers, mostly as a general assignment reporter but also a foreign correspondent. While still a reporter, he completed his first book, a collection of articles about the flamboyant '60s written for New York Magazine and Esquire, thus cementing his reputation as a noted chronicler and staunch critic of contemporary culture. Set in Miami, his newest book "Back to Blood" features Wolfe's high-energy reporting and a cast of characters as fascinating as any he has ever conceived. Wolfe appeared in conversation with Steven Winn on November 1, 2012.
