Overview

As the technological and information revolutions continue to transform our lives, the world is moving towards a planetary society. The forces of globalization are creating greater interdependence between individuals, enterprises, communities and nations, leading to a culture that Peter Ellyard calls "Planetism" - the values of the "spaceship culture" - will he argues, shape the global market-place of the early 21st century. In this volume, Ellyard offers a vision for human prosperity in the next century. About 70 per cent of the job categories, products and services of our Planetist future have yet to be invented, and great opportunities exist for innovators with a vision for this future. He argues that the world needs more "leaders" - that is, people who have the vision and energy to direct change - and fewer "managers" - that is, people who simply react to change.
