Revolutionary wealth by Alvin Toffler( Book )

38 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social analysts Alvin and Heidi Toffler turn their attention to the revolution in wealth now sweeping the planet. This book is about how tomorrow's wealth will be created, and who will get it and how. But 21st-century wealth, they argue, is not just about money, and cannot be understood in terms of industrial-age economics. They write about everything from education and child rearing to Hollywood and China, from everyday truth and misconceptions to what they call our "third job"--The unnoticed work we do without pay for some of the biggest corporations. In earlier work, they coined the word "prosumer" for people who consume what they themselves produce. Here they expand the concept to reveal how many of our activities--parenting, volunteering, blogging, painting our house, improving our diet, organizing a neighborhood council--pump "free lunch" from the "hidden" non-money economy into the money economy that economists track.--From publisher description

33 editions published between 1980 and 1988 in French and Undetermined and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur du célèbre ##Choc du futur## (1971) récidive avec cette immense fresque analytique exhaustivement documentée dans tous les domaines où se manifestent l'agitation et l'"agir" humains. Constat lucide de la confrontation actuelle entre les mouvements de décentralisation percevables au niveau des problèmes intérieurs nationaux et les efforts de concentration para, multi et supra-nationaux. Courants et tendances adverses des idéologies, des modes de vie, des mentalités qui en découlent. Luttes traditionnelles à conséquences conservatrices et découvertes progressistes à causes rénovatrices qui s'affrontent. Terrain immense et "multivalent" qu'examine en détail l'auteur à l'affût de tous les indices porteurs de changement. Ce qui lui fait affirmer que nous vivons déjà dans le futur qu'il faut assumer pour le mieux-être de l'humanité toute entière. Une telle synthèse n'est point dépourvue d'imagination et de risques, mais elle incite et stimule à la réflexion sérieuse. Ce qui valorise cet ouvrage très abordable et passionnant. Notes bibliographiques abondantes. [SDM]
