The "Five-Hundred-Year Delta" is Upon Us -- a point in time when the three great rivers of thought that have shaped our culture (Reason, Market Economy, and Social Organization) converge as they come to their ends. This watershed period heralds a time of change so swift, so massive, that by century's end it will have swept away nearly the entire underpinnings of modern life. We will shift from a reason-based mode of thought to a chaos-based one; producer-controlled markets will collapse into demand-controlled ones; and our social, political, and economic organization will fracture.
Here to guide us through this turbulent time are futurists Jim Taylor and Watts Wacker. In The 500 Year Delta they share their insights about the coming Age of Possibility to give readers the practical tools they need to stay one step ahead of everyone else. The book that will carry us into the next millennium, it is mandatory reading for entrepreneurs, innovators, business professionals, and anyone else who doesn't want to merely live in the future, but wants to own it.
