In the tradition of Alvin Toffler's Future Shock and John Naisbitt's Megatrends, The 500-Year Delta offers an enthralling glimpse of what businesses and individuals should expect as the five-hundred-year-old 'Age of Reason' segues into the 'Age of Possibility.' According to visionary futurists Jim Taylor and Watts Wacker, we stand at not one but several crossroads-marked points of discontinuity between past and present. These include: The shift from reason-based to chaos-based logic The splintering of social, political, and economic organization The collapse of producer-controlled consumer markets For a world caught in this swirling intersection of change, Jim Taylor and Watts Wacker provide tested strategies to help companies and individuals reset their course toward an unpredictable future, offering new models to accommodate the increasing chaos of everyday life. Describing our present point of transformation as a 'triple witching hour,' the authors chart a future course that is at once bracing, forbidding, joyous, and ultimately redemptive.
