'Revolutionary Wealth,' by Alvin Toffler and Heidi Toffler - The New York Times Book Review - New York Times

'Revolutionary Wealth,' by Alvin Toffler and Heidi Toffler - The New York Times Book Review - New York Times: "Now the Tofflers are again back from the near future. Their new book, 'Revolutionary Wealth,' builds on the framework of their previous writings, so there's a lot of talk about clashes among First Wave (agrarian), Second Wave (industrialized) and Third Wave (postindustrial, or 'knowledge-based') societies. They argue convincingly that we are on the verge of a post-scarcity world that will slash poverty and 'unlock countless opportunities and new life trajectories,' at least if we avoid the rapidly escalating risks to such progress."
