Post The Accelerating World: Speed vs. Control
Have you noticed the world accelerating around you? Do you feel excited, interested, curious, surprised, cautious or even fascinated? Have you wondered about how to cope with this? Then this book is for you.
---
Over the past five decades, several mysterious and seemingly unrelated events have taken place. Sand has become rare. Species have disappeared at unprecedented rates. Diabetes rates have boomed. Online data thefts have surged. Urbanization and waste have soared. What is happening? Is it globalization? Or is something much deeper taking place, something that the world had never experienced before – a tremendous acceleration?

Why and how has this acceleration been possible? What are the implications of a new accelerating world and does it necessarily lead to a loss of control? The Accelerating World: Speed vs. Control will take you through captivating anecdotes and data analysis in seven areas: Population, Economy, Technology, Data, Environment, Freedoms and Health. From the implications of a world adding a billion more people every 12 years, to global GDP explosion (X10 in a century!), exponential computing capabilities, environmental use or what it means to live in a world of data and individual freedoms. The Accelerating World: Speed vs. control will take you through some 100 graphical analysis with anecdotes on where the world is and where the acceleration is leading.
