"We are in an age of accelerations where the need to pause, reimagine, and reflect has never been more important.” – Thomas Friedman
At a time of dizzying change, when the ground seems to be shifting under our feet, how can we understand and make the most of the big trends reshaping every facet of our lives?
According to Thomas Friedman, the planet’s three largest forces – Moore’s law (technology), the Market (globalization), and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss) — are accelerating all at once, transforming the workplace, politics, international relations, ethics, and community. In his new book, Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations, Friedman offers a blueprint for overcoming the stresses of a very fast world.
Watch: The World is Fast.
