I'm currently reading Jack Plunkett's new book, The Next Boom: What You Absolutely, Positively Have to Know About the World Between Now and 2025. Jack is the CEO and publisher of Plunkett Research a leading provider of industry sector analysis and research, industry trends and industry statistics. The book is a refreshingly optimistic take on the world economy (and honestly that is exactly what I need right now). Plunkett "persuasively demonstrates the emerging trends, technologies and changes that will lead to a new period of substantial economic growth in emerging nations as well as many of the world's leading economies. He presents a panorama of carefully documented developments in areas including energy, health care, education, demographics, trade, technologies and the rapidly-growing global middle class - showing how trends in America and around the world have tremendous synergy that will lead to a long-term surge in global business. This book will help you understand how to best position your business, your investments and your career to benefit from the coming era of global growth." (Amazon) Definitely pick up the book and also check out The Next Boom video series available on YouTube.
