Western society is trapped by three assumptions: 1) the point of life is to maximize your self-interest and wealth, 2) we’re individuals trapped in an adversarial world, and 3) that this path is inevitable. These ideas separate us, keep us powerless, and limit our imagination for the future. We see them as truth. They’re not. They’re a point of view that previous generations accepted. It’s time we replace them with something new. This Could Be Our Future is about how we change course. While the pursuit of wealth has produced innovation and prosperity, it has also produced dire consequences–environmental collapse, corruption, exploitation, and unhappiness around the world. We don’t have to get rid of money entirely, though: we can co-opt the tools we have used toward financial maximization–measurement, technology, and specificity of goals–and refocus them to build a more generous, fair, and future-prepared society. By recalibrating our definition of value, a world of scarcity can become a world of abundance. Hopeful but firmly grounded, full of concrete examples and bursting with creativity, This Could Be Our Future brilliantly dissects the world we live in and shows us a road map to the world we are capable of making.
