Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think

The New York Times bestselling “manifesto for the future that is grounded in practical solutions addressing the world’s most pressing concerns: overpopulation, food, water, energy, education, health care and freedom” (The Wall Street Journal).

Since the dawn of humanity, a privileged few have lived in stark contrast to the hardscrabble majority. Conventional wisdom says this gap cannot be closed. But it is closing—fast.

In Abundance, space entrepreneur turned innovation pioneer Peter H. Diamandis and award-winning science writer Steven Kotler document how progress in artificial intelligence, robotics, digital manufacturing synthetic biology, and other exponentially growing technologies will enable us to make greater gains in the next two decades than we have in the previous 200 years. We will soon have the ability to meet and exceed the basic needs of every person on the planet. Abundance for all is within our grasp.

Breaking down human needs by category—water, food, energy, healthcare, education, freedom—Diamandis and Kotler introduce us to innovators and industry captains making tremendous strides in each area. “Not only is Abundance a riveting page-turner…but it’s a book that gives us a future worth fighting for. And even more than that, it shows us our place in that fight” (The Christian Science Monitor).

Abundância (Em Portuguese do Brasil)

Desde os primórdios da humanidade, alguns poucos privilegiados vivem de modo que contrasta com o da maioria das pessoas. A sabedoria convencional diz que essa disparidade não pode ser anulada. Mas ela vem sendo anulada - e rapidamente. Abundância - o futuro é melhor do que você imagina documenta como o progresso nas áreas de inteligência artificial, robótica, manufatura digital, nanomateriais, biologia sintética e muitas outras tecnologias de crescimento exponencial permitirão que tenhamos, nas próximas duas décadas, ganhos maiores que os dos dois últimos séculos. Logo poderemos suprir todas as necessidades de cada homem, mulher e criança do planeta. A abundância universal está ao nosso alcance.

Os autores apresentam dúzias de inovações e empreendedores que têm dado passos largos em cada área: Dean Kamen e sua tecnologia Slingshot, que transforma água poluída ou salgada, e até mesmo esgoto, em água potável de alta qualidade por menos de um centavo por litro; o Qualcomm Tricorder X PRIZE, que promete um equipamento médico portátil, de baixo custo, para que as pessoas possam se autodiagnosticar melhor que uma junta de doutores diplomados.

Há ainda as "fazendas verticais" de Dickson Despommier, que substituem a agricultura tradicional por um sistema que usa 80% menos de área cultivada, 90% menos de água, 100% menos pesticidas e custo zero de transporte. Nesse incrível antídoto contra o pessimismo atual, os autores exploram como quatro forças emergentes - tecnologias exponenciais, inovadores que seguem a filosofia faça-você-mesmo, tecnofilantropos e o bilhão ascendente - conspiram para resolver os maiores problemas da humanidade.

O livro é um antídoto contra o pessimismo atual

Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World

“A visionary roadmap for people who believe they can change the world—and invaluable advice about bringing together the partners and technologies to help them do it.” —President Bill Clinton

A radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools, Bold unfolds in three parts. Part One focuses on the exponential technologies that are disrupting today’s Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs to go from “I’ve got an idea” to “I run a billion-dollar company” far faster than ever before. The authors provide exceptional insight into the power of 3D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics, networks and sensors, and synthetic biology. Part Two draws on insights from billionaires such as Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos and reveals their entrepreneurial secrets. Finally, Bold closes with a look at the best practices that allow anyone to leverage today’s hyper-connected crowd like never before. Here, the authors teach how to design and use incentive competitions, launch million-dollar crowdfunding campaigns to tap into tens of billions of dollars of capital, and finally how to build communities—armies of exponentially enabled individuals willing and able to help today’s entrepreneurs make their boldest dreams come true.
