    future

    Hi there,
    Which one (future or futures) is correct?
    When should we use 'future' as countable noun?

    Teenagers are our (future/futures).
    We should make investment for our (future/futures).

    tks

    Re: future

    Teenagers are our (future/futures).
    We should make investment for our (future/futures).

    In these sentences, use future. There is no plural for future, if you mean it to be a place in time.

    Futures is an economic term.
