International Futures (IFs) is a large-scale, long-term, integrated global modeling system. It represents demographic, economic, energy, agricultural, socio-political, and environmental subsystems for 183 countries interacting in the global system. The central purpose of IFs is to facilitate exploration of global futures through alternative scenarios. The model is integrated with a large database containing values for its many foundational data series since 1960. We link to IFs here.
The model was developed over several generations, principally by Dr. Barry B. Hughes of the University of Denver and the Josef Korbel School of International Studies. IFs is continually being revised and updated, most importantly through the institutional support and structure of the Pardee Center.
We use IFs to develop quantitative, graphical GDP-based scenario modeling to inform policy and strategy choices. The outcomes of our models allow members and clients to determine the likely fixed trends and uncertain variables faced by national, regional and global organizations and to develop scenarios and future investment plans.
