The Sixth Wave

Not only is it difficult in foresight and easy in hindsight, but it also carries the possibility that you’ll be completely and utterly wrong. THE SIXTH WAVE makes a very bold prediction indeed. It predicts the next wave of innovation. The act of predicting the future does have some advantages, whether you’re right or not. Predictions give you something to test your ideas against and can put some of the big and little things you see every day into a broader context.

And then there are the very little things that happen on a big scale. What do all these things have in common? The first half of THE SIXTH WAVE explores the five previous waves of innovation, and how they were shaped by market forces, technologies and the very glue that holds societies together.

Ça commence sur son cadavre rongé par les vers dans un hôtel miteux, rempli de putes et de drogués. Le cadavre de Valerie Solanas, celle qui tira sur Andy Wahrol quelques mois après avoir écrit SCUM Manifesto, l'un des textes les plus importants du XXème siècle - et pas seulement pour le féminisme. Xmas reading list. An Essay on Criticism. 'Tis hard to say, if greater Want of Skill Appear in Writing or in Judging ill, But, of the two, less dang'rous is th' Offence, To tire our Patience, than mis-lead our Sense: Some few in that, but Numbers err in this, Ten Censure wrong for one who Writes amiss; A Fool might once himself alone expose, Now One in Verse makes many more in Prose.

Contours of the World Economy 1-2030 AD:Essays in Macro-Economic History By: Angus Maddison

Encompassing 2000 years of history, part 1 begins with the Roman Empire and explores the key factors that have influenced economic development in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe. Part 2 covers the development of macroeconomic tools of analysis from the 17th century to the present. Part 3 looks to the future and considers what the shape of the world economy might be in 2030. Combining both the close quantitative analysis for which Professor Maddison is famous with a more qualitative approach that takes into account the complexity of the forces at work, this book provides students and all interested readers with a totally fascinating overview of world economic history.
