About this Item

ix, 243 p. Illustrations. Notes. Index. As Stan Davis makes clear, the keys to business in the next century lie in truly understanding the science and technology of today. The future perfect mind-set is not simply a prescription for 2001, but for here and now. According to Stan Davis's visionary analysis, those who limit their thinking to the familiar contexts of the Industrial Age will never be able to exploit the essential raw materials of the New Economy-time, space, and matter. These basic properties have been so thoroughly transformed by science and technology that they now define the frontiers of growth. Very good in very good dust jacket. Signed by author. Compliments card pasted inside front board. Bookseller Inventory # 59914
