  1. Man-what production values.These news stories are just fabulous.The Economist has everyone including network news programs beat to hell.It embarrasses me to watch it for free.Thank God it’s there for everyone.

  2. I want to work at home and not physically have to go to office everyday. That way I could minimize my usage of car, time spent going to work, pollution etc

  3. Video made by a son of bich….cuz in 2050 if we continu with petrol is meaning we desearve to die… not me you fucking bastard cuz i use electric car…. people with petrol car in 2020 hope they die very atrosly !!! Fuck human fucking human and you who read my comments go die son of bitch

  4. Thanks to The Economist for informative and educational journalism. You certainly know how to tell a story that makes the subject of smart cities interesting. Quality production values too.

  5. We need to stop the manipulation of the feelings and perceptions of the world population… We need access to the full information…and a real education for the whole planet about our real history…without that the human species is doomed to ignorance… If you want to make a global sistem create one without economic warfare… We need to evolve a real evolution for all mankind

  6. Looks nice in a video, but reality is not like this. Seoul has huge traffic jams, especially during rush hour in Gangnam district. They should have filmed that. But metro works perfectly, as well as buses and kakao taxi (Korean version of whats' up + uber)

  7. Hopefully by 2050 we should have transportation (such as the hyperloop) that allows us to live further from the city and IP based systems that would allow employees to login and work from home or anywhere else.

  8. Its not about technology. Its about design. A well designed city will work excellently with little technology, technology can often make up for a poor design but it can never replace it as a priority.
