What will life in 2050 be like for the Jetskys, an upper-middle-class Jewish family living in San Diego? Based on current research and analysis of technological, cultural, sociological, political, and climate trends, join Dr. Stan Schatt for a sneak peek at a day in the life of this family thirty years from now. He will explore the family’s diet, their mode of transportation, their life at work and play, their educational institutions, and even their teen daughter’s dating habits. You’ll discover how political parties, robots, and even Jewish denominations are likely to evolve from 2020. Schatt will show what films have gotten right about 2020 and what they have gotten wrong. So, why wait to discover what San Diego in 2050 will be like for your children, your grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and even yourselves (thanks to modern medicine) when you can do so now?
