Interesting book. One guy's vision of the future, with how we can solve the energy crisis, the rising cost of education, ride out stock market bubbles etc. All about automation and globalization in the future.

This was an interesting book. It is all about the future and how advanced technology will become and how these advancements will change our lives.
Sone of the ideas seemed plausible for the near future. Others seemed a little far-fetched.
The only thing I'm concerned about if these ideas come to fruition is that we will all turn into lazy bums and robots will do all our work for us.
