The authors begin at what they see as the birth of modern technology - 1980 - and chart the story of the furture through to 2020 in a captivating narrative format, inter-linked with material from a documentary produced in the year 2050 and a series of letters from a fictional character written in ten-year intervals beginning in 1980. The authors see the long boom as a period of sustained growth that could eventually double the world's economy every dozen years and bring increasing properity to billions of people on the planet. Today we are riding the early waves of this expanding economy that in time could do much to solve many of the intractable global problems, such as poverty and ease tension throughout the world. This, according to the authors, is the possibility. But it is not inevitable. We sill all have to make the choice to go for growth. 'The Long Boom' is an incredibly powerful vision of the future. It is radical, optomistic and captivating. It cannot be ignored.
