The Current Deep Economic Crisis Marks a Great Transition.
This fascinating new book tells you about the current crisis,
its origins, and what’s behind today’s headlines:
A cleanup before a grand new age starts.

With this crisis, unlike the one of the 1980s,
we can really say goodbye to the 20th century.
This crisis offers tremendous new opportunities
for anyone who wants to recognize them.
In this insightful and inspiring book,
renowned futurologist, Adjiedj Bakas, leads you through,
and then out of, the New Great Depression of the 21st century.

The current economic crisis marks the end of an era, and the start of a new one. It is the 5th major crisis in 200 years' time. All of them occurred at the transition from one era to the next.

The Chinese phrase for crisis consists of two words danger and opportunity. The 1930s may have been a time of deep economic crisis and mass unemployment, yet in those days the Kennedys made their fortunes, art deco was born and the radio, car, and telephone grew to be so much in demand that great new industries emerged out of the ashes of the crisis. During the major economic crisis of the 1980s the personal computer, mobile phone and Internet were born and developed into major new industries.

During the current crisis we finally say goodbye to the 20th century
and transit into the new, post-material economy ...

... with new economic pillars and the mixture with artificial intelligence, in the so-called "cloud." This transition period offers tremendous opportunities!

In Beyond the Crisis, Bakas explains the natural flow of the economy with ups and downs. He envisions Boom after Doom, yet a totally different kind of Boom than we used to know. This insightful, inspiring book really helps you through the most severe crisis of our lifetime.
