MegaCrunch!: Ten Survival Strategies for 21st Century Challenges

Peter Marshall (Author) Joseph N. Pelton (Author)


The continuing post-Copenhagen debate on Climate Change and Global Warming is not the only major threat confronting the people and politicians of the world; and it may not even be the greatest threat. The 21st Century challenges we face in the coming decades also include Super Automation, Structural Unemployment, the failure of Conventional Market Systems, Super-Urbanization and Over Population. Are we, like the dinosaurs, an endangered species threatened by mass extinction? In "MegaCrunch", authors Joseph N. Pelton and Peter Marshall outline ten survival strategies we need to pursue to survive as a species.
