word for hire: prescient

pre·scient [presh-uhnt, ‐ee-uhnt pree-shuhnt, ‐shee-uhntadjective 
having prescience, or knowledge of things or events before they exist or happen; having foresight: The prescient economist was one ofthe few to see the financial collapse coming.
Noun form at MW.

Mm, good word to have clarity on. I always related it to awareness but not foresight - a lot of p words related to foresight, eh? Prognosticate, portend...
