Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What about this prediction, from Graham Greene, "The Quiet American":

If I believed in your God and another life, I'd bet my future harp against your golden crown that in five hundred years there may be no New York or London, but they'll be growing paddy in these fields, they'll be carrying their produce to market on long poles wearing their pointed hats. The small boys will be sitting on the buffaloes.
