Leaders and policymakers rely on forecasts to determine their agendas. But most predictions about the future of human progress do not reflect today’s realities. Some paint a gloomy picture of massive workforce displacement by robots. Others reinforce a now orthodox vision of a future dominated by electric vehicles and renewable energy. A forthcoming book by Manhattan Institute scholar Mark P. Mills argues that today’s conventional outlooks—whether extreme pessimism or wishful thinking—will prove wrong.
The Manhattan Institute is pleased to invite you to a book event in anticipation of The Cloud Revolution: How the Convergence of New Technologies Will Unleash the Next Economic Boom and A Roaring 2020s. In this new book, Mills presents the case for economic optimism based on technological fact—not fantasy—and illustrates the nature of the global paradigm shift that is already underway and that will blossom in the 2020s.
Please join us on November 3 at 6pm for a lecture by author and MI senior fellow Mark P. Mills.
