    The Difference Engine is an alternate history novel by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. It is a prime example of the steampunk sub-genre; It posits a Victorian Britain in which great technological and social change has occurred after entrepreneurial inventor Charles Babbage succeeded in his ambition to build a mechanical computer called Engines. The fierce summer heat and pollution have driven the ruling class out of London and the resulting anarchy allows technology-hating Luddites to challenge the intellectual elite.

    Economists and financial wizards William Sterling and Stephen Waite take an in-depth look at how America's baby boomers have transformed the nation's - and the world's - economy, and how that transformation must inevitably - and radically - alter its course as the boomers age. The authors show listeners that there are strategies they can use, both as private individuals and collectively as a nation, to stay ahead of the all-important demographics curve and prosper during the "age wave".
