Abstract
We view broadly the science and technology drivers for both space and ground optical telescopes, in order to identify the unique capabilities and limitations in each domain. This leads us to consider the potential for effective "divisions of labor" and synergies to enhance scientific value. We project the influence of new enabling technologies, human priorities, international collaboration issues, and funding expectations. Finally, we discuss current NASA and ESA optical astronomy mission goals, and speculate on long-term forecasts.
