Technological progress is happening faster than we can comprehend. In a world that is moving faster than we can imagine, we cannot afford to stand still. We must create a new framework for our local and global economies, and soon.

In this extraordinary book, Jeff Booth, a leader and CEO in e-commerce and technology, describes the technological and economic realities that are shaping our present and our future, and the choices we face as we move into the future - a potentially alarming but also very hopeful situation.
