the lights in the tunnelFrom the publisher:

The Lights in the Tunnel employs a powerful thought experiment to explore the economy of the future. An imaginary “tunnel of lights” is used to visualize the economic implications of the new technologies that are likely to appear in the coming years and decades. The book directly challenges nearly all conventional views of the future and illuminates the danger that lies ahead if we do not plan for the impact of rapidly advancing technology.  It also offers unique insights into how technology will intertwine with globalization to shape the twenty-first century and explores ways in which the economic realities of the future might be leveraged to drive prosperity and to address global challenges such as poverty and climate change.

The Lights in the Tunnel: Automation, Accelerating Technology and the Economy of the Future, by Martin Ford. [U.S.] : Acculant Publishing, 2009. 253 p. ISBN 9781448659814
