Description - Sonic Boom by Gregg Easterbrook

What can a spell-checker tell you about economic trends? Why is the world's supply of ideas about to double? What did America get right in the nineteenth century that it's getting wrong in the twenty-first? If Karl Marx were alive today, would he be hosting a show on Fox News?

These are just a few of the provocative questions asked by Sonic Boom, a (mainly) optimistic look at the near future. Sonic Boom tells why the world's economy is likely to be just fine, with prosperity increasing; why globalization will soon drive us even crazier than it does today; why "a chaotic, raucous, unpredictable, stress-inducing, free, prosperous, well-informed, and smart future is coming." The book is rich with specific examples and advice on how to navigate your own way through the craziness that's ahead. Forbes calls Gregg Easterbrook "the best writer on complex topics in the United States," and Sonic Boom will show you why.
