Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_Weekly
Dent (The Great Boom Ahead) maintains, "It won't be long before you... find something important missing from your career. Your job may vanish, or maybe your company will go AWOL." Using 50-year economic forecasts, the author delineates his controversial theories: the economic future is positive and predictable; information technologies will revolutionize businesses, creating teams, entrepreneurs and home-based specialists and generalists; and revamped companies free from bureaucracies and organized around customer needs will emerge. While well crafted, Dent's untempered optimism is debatable. Despite a carload of useful suggestions to prepare the go-getter for the future job market, he evades the issue of how a changing economy will impact on individuals working at low-level service or manufacturing jobs, or on those lacking language or computer skills.
