Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0500281572, Paperback)Yorick Blumenfeld, General Editor of the Prospects for Tomorrow series, offers a provocative glimpse into the daily life of a thriving inner-city community a hundred years from now. He imagines a better world, not a perfect one, and provides an impressionistic panorama of what such a Eutopia might offer the average citizen in 2099.
Thanks to the technological wonders of AI (Artificial Intelligence) counselors, smart robots, and "improved" babies, ordinary human beings will still have to cope, but with far less stress than they do today. In this challenging narrative, the ravages of a money-driven market have been left far behind and replaced with a viable credit system that enhances stability rather than growth and eliminates the glaring inequalities of capitalism.
This book, one of the last utopian tracts of the century, presents a broad perspective on one possible future. 2099 will encourage readers to consider the vast potential of different plausible futures in the next millennium.
