In the post WWII years, these individuals were viewed as seers, eccentrics, and dreamers with unrealistic expectations, and yet, look at us now … with … uh … exactly none of that stuff.
Could they be right this time? Data shows that prosperity is rising in most third world countries and that this rise is driven in large part by new technologies in particular computers and the internet.
Diamandis claims that cell phones reduce consumption because they obviate the need for such thing as TVs , stereos, flashlights, tools, video games, computers and home entertainment systems. How many people own not just all of these items but multiple versions of each? Cell phones are just another consumer item that people download on top of many other consumer items.
The term is most often used as a green veneer to allay the guilt of hyper-active consumers. Please log in to write a review 2 reviews.

Abundance for all is within our grasp. This bold, contrarian view, backed up by exhaustive research, introduces our near-term future, where exponentially growing technologies and three other powerful forces are conspiring to better the lives of billions.
An antidote to pessimism by tech entrepreneur turned philanthropist, Peter H. Diamandis and award-winning science writer Steven Kotler.
Since the dawn of humanity, a privileged few have lived in stark contrast to the hardscrabble majority. Conventional wisdom says this gap cannot be closed.
But it is closing—fast. The authors document how four forces—exponential technologies, the DIY innovator, the Technophilanthropist, and the Rising Billion—are conspiring to solve our biggest problems.
Peter H. Diamandis is a New York Times bestselling author, and the founder of more than fifteen high-tech companies. Chairman of the Singularity University SingularityU. Diamandis attended MIT, where he received his degrees in molecular genetics and aerospace engineering, and Harvard Medical School, where he received his MD.
His work has been translated into thirty-five languages and his articles have appeared in over seventy publications, including The New York Times Magazine , Atlantic Monthly , Wired , Forbes , and Time. He also writes Far Frontiers , a blog about science and innovation for Forbes.
Extreme poverty is down. There are developments now which make me believe we might be able to do what we did in the 90s which is use technological developments to create more jobs than we lose.
For the last few months, for the first time in literally more than a decade, 40 percent of the new jobs have been in higher wage categories.This is a vital book. But it is closing—fast. Simply put, there is no such thing as 'enough' when it comes to human beings and their desires to acquire material wealth and possessions.
What follows is the story of how we can rise to meet it. He also writes a regular blog for PsychologyToday. The current need is not only to provide food for the world but also to strengthen our ecosystem.
