Publisher's Summary

George Gilder, the man whom many credit with heralding the Reagan era of growth, takes a visionary look into the future world that is being shaped by today's technological revolution. Included are vivid accounts of the latest inventions and engrossing portraits of the leading scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs at the frontiers of knowledge. For example, according to Gilder, "we live in an epoch when desert-bound Israel can use computerized farming to supply 80 percent of the cut flowers in some European markets and compete in selling avocados in Florida; when barren Japan can claim to be number one in economic growth; and when tiny islands like Singapore and Hong Kong can far outproduce Argentina or Indonesia." According to Jack Kemp, "this book captures the essence of the quantum era with the same path-breaking vision Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations brought to the era of the industrial revolution."

    "A bit dated"

    The information is interesting from a historical perspective. I did not pay attention to the publication date until after I had listened to most of the book. Then I realized the end was purely speculation about the year 2000 and beyond. At times it is a bit pragmatic and could have been shortened significantly by eliminating the repeated use of the word microcosm.
