Mudança frenética

"On almost every front, the pace of change has become ever more frantic and the issues at the heart of this book have become more pressing. Consider the rate of change in technology. Ten years ago, the Internet was still a novelty for most people. There were no smart phones, iPods; no Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or most of the social media sites that are now transforming culture and economics around the world. Many other things have happened too – from the global impact of the events of 9/11 to the compounding effect of the Great Recession – that simply could not have been anticipated ten years ago: in politics, the economy, in culture and in the environment. The sheer unpredictability of human affairs lies right at the heart of my argument for cultivating our powers of creativity: in business, in education and in everyday life." (p. 20)
