"Three years after the recession was declared officially over,
unemployment remains high and there's worry that a new recession is down
the road. And yet waiting in the wings for when we get our economic
policies in order are a mounting number of stunning discoveries,
inventions and technological breakthroughs that could set off a burst of
growth and wealth creation as big as any in living memory."
MP: Those discoveries and technological breakthroughs outlined in the article by Malone include hydraulic fracking, nanoculture, cloud crowd, 3-D printing, Internet-based education and training, and self-health technologies. Here's his conclusion:
"It's all on the way. Together, these trends offer the potential for a
golden era. Getting there won't be easy, as we are currently governed by
leaders who want to manage our complex and dynamic economy from the top
down, to tame entrepreneurs with regulation, to tax the productive and,
ultimately, to pick the next generation of winners. That's never worked
well and isn't working today. But a better world awaits us if we elect
leaders who can imagine a better future and fight to unleash the animal
spirits of the market that will get us there."
