Format: Paperback
Futurism is fun! Alvin and Heidi Toffler have been proving that for a long time as they informed us about Future Shock (the accelerating pace of life) and The Third Wave (knowledge-driven economies). The essence of the task is to take straws in the wind and project them forward to ask "what if?" thus and so were to accelerate. As a result, the use of such thinking is to inspire us . . . rather than precisely project the future. Entrepreneurs will take some of these insights and create trillion dollar industries. Will you be one of them? Perhaps not, unless you read the book.

For most people, the book will be a wake-up call in a number of areas. If you regularly read about emerging trends . . . especially in technology, globalization, and finance, you won't find that much new here in terms of trends. You will find interesting perspectives on those trends that may differ from what you've read before.

If you don't have the luxury to immerse yourself in trends, this book will be a revelation that you'll enjoy.

For me, the new perspectives in the book came in the following areas:

1. Globalization in terms of economic intertwining is not inevitably destined to increase. In fact, many trends point to the possibility of a reversal of increasing globalization at some future point. That was an interesting thought to consider which has large investing consequences.

2. Economic statistics are falling further and further behind in measuring what's really going on in production and consumption . . . particularly as people produce and consume more for themselves. A lot of our economic surprises probably relate to changes in what isn't being measured.

We are on the edge of an amazing future. What changes lay ahead? What skills will you need to be successful and happy? Will you be ready?

Alvin and Heidi Toffler are futurists. They have studied and written predictions of the future for decades.

Their first book, Future Shock was released back in 1970. It was thoroughly researched and critically thought through. Many of their predictions came true.

Revolutionary Wealth also makes predictions about the future. Since their past books were proven to be accurate on many topics, it's fair to assume that their latest book will provide many insightful thoughts about the future.

Here are just a few of the topics: Waves of wealth, the edge of knowledge, the gospel of change, implosion, capitalism's end game, running tomorrow's money and much more.

The book is a page turner and provides a peek into what can and probably will happen depending on the paths that we as society take.

Here are some key excerpts from their work.

The Wealth System

"If the First Wave wealth system was chiefly based on growing things, and the Second Wave on making things, the Third Wave wealth system is increasingly based on serving, thinking, knowing and experiencing...The new wealth system demands a complete shake-up in the way increasingly temporary skill sets are organized for increasingly temporary purposes throughout the economy. Nothing is more deeply fundamental to the creation of wealth."

Knowledge

"In each of us there is a crowded, invisible warehouse full of knowledge and its precursor data and information.
