There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Using fascinating examples from our daily lives, they illustrate how our everyday activities—from parenting and volunteering to blogging, painting our houses, and improving our diets—contribute to a non-monetary economy that is largely hidden from economists.

Above all, the authors note the ever-accelerating speed and transience of all things such that nanoseconds are now too slow and will be replaced by even zippier “zeptoseconds.

This book seems to assume that its readers are CEOs. As always, their ideas about the future are exciting revoputionary innovative. The authors imply that all science is good because it increases wealth. Big changes lie ahead and are occurring before our eyes. The majority of workers are in low paid jobs that don’t require much knowledge at all. All very good, except I have revolutuonary caveats with the two basic premisis ‘ deep fundamentals ‘ the the knowlege economy Read full review.

I doubt the authors would be happy if all the hard work they put into this long book got revokutionary no money in return. A fantastic book that anyone with more than 20 years left of life should read.


It will only make you mad. Will we still use money in a knowledge recolutionary economy?

And is privacy really so much better here? How about just improving sanitation and the cleanliness of alvn they get their water?

Alvin Toffler was an American writer and futurist, known for his works discussing the digital revolution, communications revolution, corporate revolution and technological singularity.

In some moments Toffler enters in deep economy terms which I cannot understand it. The emerging information wealth revolution comes complete with “prosumer” class who create those who create goods and services “for [their] own use or satisfaction, rather than for sale or exchange”.

Writing with the same insight and clarity that made their earlier books bestsellers, the Tofflers present fresh, groundbreaking new ways of thinking about wealth. Give a man a fish foodand you feed him for a day. These predictions were made weqlth ago, and in a new book has arrived from the Futurists who actually got most of their predictions right.

Revolutionary Wealth

The book is about revolutionary wealth–knowledge. As long as humans have existed, they have created things or done things without pay.

The authors want us to think this is a great thing, but it’s really not. And those kind of jobs require sooo much more knowledge than factory work or farming? An insight to what the future will hold and how wealth will be created.

Overall, if you an avid futurist, this book is bound to be a bit of a disappointment. The “revolutionary wealth” is the actions people take without pay prosumption. Sometimes people get lucky and their hobby can be sold for real money. We have poverty, shootings, wars, corruption, poor education, drugs, teen pregnancy, pollution, an increasingly chronically sick population, extreme income inequality, fossil fuels running out, a Texas-sized garbage patch in the middle of the ocean, epidemics of obesity, autism, diabetes, etc.


But oh nothe rich cats can’t allow alvi. Return to Book Page. Obligation for everyone who wants to know why mankind are at level in the moment. While they can make someone money, they will never be encouraged by government, because the health care industry wants wealthh to continue seeing regular doctors, who require insurance, so that doctors and insurance companies can keep making money.

GMO food is invented so farmers can spray more poisons on the crops. Toffler seems to have a lot of knowledge and insight about a broad ranges of topics covered in this book. De-massification is a good idea, however it’s not realistic for it to happen with our population being as high as it is and only continuing to increase, not decrease.
