About the Author
Jeff Booth is een visionaire leider die al 20 jaar in de voorhoede van technologische veranderingen leeft. Hij leidde BuildDirect, een technologiebedrijf dat de bouwindustrie wilde vereenvoudigen, bijna twee decennia lang door de dot-com meltdown, de financiële crisis van 2008 en vele golven van technologische ontwrichting.Jeff is genoemd in Forbes, TechCrunch,, The Globe and Mail, BNN, Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Bloomberg, TIME en The Wall Street Journal. In 2015 werd hij uitgeroepen tot BC Technology Industry Association's (BCTIA) Person of the Year, en in 2016 riep Goldman Sachs hem uit tot een van de 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs.Hij is Founding Partner van OtioLabs, medeoprichter van en NocNoc, en zetelt in het bestuur van Terramera,, LlamaZOO, Synthiam en de Richmond Hospital Foundation, evenals in talrijke adviesraden.Hij is sinds 2004 lid van de Young Presidents Organization en is medeoprichter van het Creative Destruction Lab.

"Is this time different? Most economists say "no" - we've adapted to many technological revolutions before. In contrast, Jeff says "yes". And thus begins a journey of ideas as he takes the reader on a tour de force, making his case for why that's so and sharing revelations from his personal relationships with tech industry leaders along the way. To harness the power of technology for good, we need to understand how it is linked to humanity. In a sweeping analysis that draws upon economics, science, innovation, politics, psychology, sociology, and business, Jeff offers an intriguing thesis predicated on the deflationary impact of technological advance coupled with increasingly easy credit. True to his impulse as an entrepreneur - a thinker, but also a doer - he concludes with a call to action. Business leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and youth committed to working towards a brighter future should read this book."

--Ajay Agrawal, Professor at the University of Toronto and Founder of the Creative Destruction Lab

"As someone who understands the exponential rate that technology is advancing, Jeff Booth has a unique ability to connect the dots to something bigger in this must read book. Few books offer a more succinct, provocative, and enlightening view of the world as it is today, and what it could be tomorrow. Your world view will transform instantly."
