Long Boom by Peter Schwartz
Book DescriptionHow converging technological, economic, political, and social forces are shaping our world and our future-and how our choices today can lead to a new age of prosperity.. The Washington Post called The Long Boom "a future-history and a challenge"-and that is exactly what it is: the story of the world's future, powered by emerging technologies, and a political vision that can help realize an era of unprecedented growth and opportunity. The Long Boom urges everyone to recognize that global prosperity, a sustainable environment, broad social progress, and even radically extended lifespans are very possible-if not probable-in the 20 years to come.
