They show the hidden connections between extreme sports, chocolate chip cookies, Linux software, and the "surplus complexity" in our lives as society wobbles back and forth between depressing decadence and a hopeful post-decadence.
In their earlier work, the Tofflers coined the word "prosumer" for people who consume what they themselves produce. In Revolutionary Wealth, they expand the concept to reveal how many of our activities, whether parenting or volunteering, blogging, painting our house, improving our diet, organizing a neighborhood council, or even "mashing" music, pump "free lunch" from the "hidden" non-money economy into the money economy that economists track. Prosuming, they forecast, is about to explode and compel radical changes in the way we measure, make and manipulate wealth.
Blazing with fresh ideas, Revolutionary Wealth provides listeners with powerful new tools for thinking about, and preparing for, their future.

I would have gone with a different narrator. I don't expect a huge production with this type of material, but the narrator's lack of intonation and emphasis was not very engaging.
