    But in this case, I found a Revolutionary wealth book repetitive, both within the book and compared to their earlier books. For example, a person who designs a kitchen with IKEA's online templates and then buys the necessary kits from an IKEA shop to be assembled in his or her own home is a prosumer. The "revolutionary wealth" is the actions people take without pay prosumption. Obviously, this is probably the most accurate prediction in the book.

    When societies began using money, people then started selling their prosumption and it became Revolutionary wealth book. He despised disorder and loathed disobedience. To explain what that means, the pages ahead will deal with everything from family life and jobs to time pressures and the mounting complexity of everyday life. That helps U. A network, after all, is only as powerful as the number of participants. And, for better or worse, we wouldn't have more overweight people than undernourished people on earth — as we do.

    Science has become a religion, a tool of the rich to persuade the public to buy what they're selling. For better and worse, billions of lives around the world are already being changed by this Revolutionary wealth book. Prosuming, they forecast, is about to explode and compel radical changes in the way we measure, make and manipulate wealth. Even sexual boundaries are no longer fixed, as homosexuality and bisexuality blast out of the closet and the small population of transsexuals grows. Using fascinating examples from our daily lives, they illustrate how our everyday activities—from parenting and volunteering to blogging, painting our houses, and improving our diets—contribute to a non-monetary economy that is largely hidden from economists. So outsourcing is only good for the companies, not American workers.

Revolutionary wealth book should be trying to improve our existing lives with good health instead of seeking to prolong it with organ transplants and such. America today is spearheading just such a new civilization built around a revolutionary way of creating wealth. Each carries with it a new way of life, a civilization.

The authors seem to think that capitalism dying would be great because it's a change, and all change is good. How about just improving sanitation and the cleanliness of wherever they get their water?

But oh nothe rich cats can't allow that. It sounds as if the poetic side of the Tofflers is getting the upper hand. The book seems to also think it's a good thing if some gadget can store all information and memories for a person so that "pupils will need to memorize nothing," because that could be great for Alzheimer's patients.

The only reason developed nations like ours want to "globalize" is to exploit more cheap labor and natural resources from their land. Today, for the growing millions who work from home, the line is blurred. This book seems to assume that its readers are CEOs. The literary Beats and their hippie followers glorified "doing your own thing"--a precision attack on the conformity valued in industrial mass societies.

Just as important, the Third Wave wealth system "demassifies production, markets and society," creating space for unending experimentation, innovation and individuation.
