Last week, Heather Bresch, the CEO of Mylan Pharmaceuticals, testified in front of the US Congress about why the company has raised the price of EpiPen from roughly $US57 ($75) in 2007 to $US600 ($785) in the US today. (EpiPens are subsidised in Australia and typically under $100). Under intense questioning, she claimed that the company only makes about $US100 ($131) per two-pack of EpiPens. Today the company was forced to "clarify" that the price was actually higher. They make $US160 ($209).

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
