Andy Stern, the former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), spent four years traveling the country and asking economists, futurists, labor leaders, CEOs, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, and political leaders to help envision the US economy 25 to 30 years from now. He vividly reports on people who are analyzing and creating this new economy - such as investment banker Steve Berkenfeld; David Cote, the CEO of Honeywell International; and Andy Grove of Intel.

The narrator was putting me off for the whole book, made it difficult to listen, but that is just my personal taste I guess. The book is worthwhile to read and the experience of the lead author definitely puts some weight behind the concepts discussed in the book.
