Tämä arvostelu kirjoitettiin LibraryThingin Varhaisia arvostelijoita varten.The book is divided into three parts. The first part examines the past and present trends that will shape the future, such as globalization, technology, and demographic shifts. Attali argues that these trends will continue to accelerate and intertwine, creating a world that is more interconnected, diverse, and unequal.
The second part of the book explores different scenarios for the future, ranging from dystopian visions of environmental collapse and social breakdown to optimistic visions of a post-scarcity society in which technology has eliminated poverty and inequality. Attali emphasizes that the future is not predetermined and that different choices and actions taken today can shape the trajectory of human civilization.
The final part of the book offers recommendations for how individuals, organizations, and governments can navigate the challenges and opportunities of the future. Attali emphasizes the importance of ethical leadership, global cooperation, and sustainable development in creating a world that is just, prosperous, and resilient.
Overall, "A Brief History of the Future" offers a thought-provoking and wide-ranging exploration of the possible futures that await humanity. Attali's insights and recommendations provide a valuable resource for anyone interested in understanding and shaping the trajectory of human civilization in the coming decades and centuries.
Star Trek-loving inventors who 3D print in space, vegan researchers who replicate the composition and chemical structures of meat in a lab, and mad scientists who save humans from terrible disorders by cutting and pasting genes like letters in a document. These are a few of the remarkable stories featured in Next, an in-depth look at the coming global challenges and the transformative innovations that will help make our world a better place. Imperiled by hunger, pollution, and global warming, we are more at risk of driving ourselves into extinction than ever before. But it doesn't have to be this way. Despite this existential crisis, we're in an era of remarkable wealth and innovation that could allow us to fundamentally change our destiny―to cure the sick, feed the hungry, and help the needy. Next tells the story of 13 inspiring innovators around the world who are already tackling these challenges and transforming our species. Call it Humanity 2.0. Every individual and venture featured in Next is having an outsized impact on human history. Their stories show what the future might look like. But most of all, they will give readers hope. As the science fiction writer William Gibson once put it: "The future is already here. It is just not very evenly distributed."

Each subject covered deals with special people who create and institute measures that will improve the status quo or take a totally different approach. Not all the topics were that appealing but there were many ideas expressed here that are fascinating. And the amazing things is they will soon become common place to us as we ramp up our technology assisted with the AI the big buzzword out there night.
There are too many ideas to go through in a brief review here but the latter topic on working with self driving cars by Google's X-man I found particularly interesting. The idea presented that in the possibly near future our transportation will be revolutionized by totally self driving vehicles that will be at our call to whisk us anywhere as we kick back and enjoy the ride without the added burned of ownership and upkeep. Not to mention the lives it will save by virtually eliminating human error accidents.
A book with much food for thought for the forward thinking and curious out there. ( )
