I was one of the few privileged enough to read the manuscript and I have to say that this book will keep you up at night and change the way you see the world. The author transcend all polemics and strides forth to find the commonalities in all ideological positions in light of modern scientific and technological discoveries and advancements that bode a coming economic singularity. He quickly goes over the history of the underlying economic and political philosophy issues and then takes up where Kurzweil, Diamandis, Ridley and Kelly leaves off and extends their thought to all the way to the Omega Point.
Having read The Zero Marginal Cost Society I have to say that this is the book that Rifkin should of wrote, thought he probably didn’t have the depth or breadth of C. James Townsend. Of r in this book this author actually shows how we can reach a almost Zero Marginal Cost Society and he used valid economics and ideas from both classical liberalism and Marxism to do it.
