The industries of the Future by Alec Ross – one of America’s leading experts on innovation is about what’s next for the world: the advances which will emerge in the next ten years, and how we can sail them
He highlights the best opportunities for progress and explaining why countries grow or fall. Ross describes how Indonesia, Brazil, Chile, Peru and Mexico are positioning themselves in the global economy. Ross believes that any country that does not empower women will fall behind. Besides, he discusses five emerging industries that he predicts will dominate the next twenty years.
- Codified Money
- The Weaponization of Code ( Cyber War & Cyber Security)
- Big Data Analytics
Overall, I enjoyed this uplifting, thought-provoking and well-reasoned book. It has a good writing style that allows it to flow.
The world is changing, and, in general, for the better. It’s crucial to embrace it and raise our children to be technologically literate and comfortable in a multicultural world. To do so, I highly recommend reading this book if you are not following technology news.
