'A powerful analysis . intelligently presented by an admirably well-informed and perceptive author.' - Foresight In the tradition of the now-classic Future Shock by Alvin Toffler, world-renowned economist and political adviser Jacques Attali predicts how our world will look in the coming decades and a century from now. Will terrorists, pirates, dictators, droughts, and floods create global chaos? Or will peace, prosperity, and greater freedom bless the planet? Never has the world offered more promise for the future yet been more fraught with potential dangers. How we respond to the crises and opportunities that await us will determine what kind of world we will bequeath to our children and grandchildren. The time to act is now. 'Attali is one of the very few global thinkers who has consistently gotten it right. Well over twenty years ago he foresaw the rise of Asia and the advent of 'nomadic technologies' such as the cell phones and iPods we now use everyday. More recently he predicted the financial collapse in America long before it actually happened. Attali has unerringly grasped the arc and logic of unfolding history.' - Nathan Gardels, editor in chief, New Perspectives Quarterly and editor in chief, Global Services, Los Angeles Times 'This work is absolutely essential for understanding the threats and promises of the decades to come. Indispensible for those who want to give meaning to their actions.' - Pascal Lamy, director general, World Trade Organization 'This book distills in a provocative and entertaining way the visions about our future of one of the world's most stimulating thinkers. Jacques Attali offers readers a unique perspective about where we are and were we are heading. It should be obligatory reading for any reader eager to think imaginatively about the future.' - Moisis Namm, editor in chief, Foreign Policy
