The Washington Post called The Long Boom "a future-history and a challenge"-and that is exactly what it is: the story of the world's future, powered by emerging technologies, and a political vision that can help realize an era of unprecedented growth and opportunity. The Long Boom urges everyone to recognize that global prosperity, a sustainable environment, broad social progress, and even radically extended lifespans are very possible-if not probable-in the 20 years to come.

Very well repected Washington Kiplinger Editors offer similar book reporting similar trends in Global Business, Geo-politics and Technology.... ....'World Boom Ahead'.... ...never expect a guarranty how mankind will advance globally......but plenty of room for thoughtful, practical blueprints and scenario planning..... ...offers very practical advice for world's business and political leaders....not intended to be a detailed roadmap for global destiny.... If for the first 50 years of the world's 21st century mankind aligns toward this course blueprint, then mankind has the opportunity to make up for the tragic first 50 years of the world's 20th century. All need to read this book so as to know what policies to be demanding from their local, state, regional, federal politicians and business enterprise leaders.
