    Description

    Two renowned investment advisors and authors of the best seller The Great Reckoning bring to light both currents of disaster and the potential for prosperity and renewal in the face of radical changes in human history as we move into the next century. The Sovereign Individual details strategies necessary for adapting financially to the next phase of Western civilization.  

    Few observers of the late-20th century have their fingers so presciently on the pulse of the global political and economic realignment ushering in the new millennium as do James Dale Davidson and Lord William Rees-Mogg. Their bold prediction of disaster on Wall Street in Blood in the Streets was borne out by Black Tuesday. In their ensuing best sellar, The Great Reckoning, published just weeks before the coup attempt against Gorbachev, they analyzed the pending collapse of the Soviet Union and foretold the civil war in Yugoslavia and other events that have proved to be among the most searing developments of the past few years.  

    In The Sovereign Individual, Davidson and Rees-Mogg explore the greatest economic and political transition in centuries - the shift from an industrial to an information-based society. This transition, which they have termed "the fourth stage of human society", will liberate individuals as never before, irrevocably altering the power of government. This outstanding book will replace false hopes and fictions with new understanding and clarified values.

    ©1999 James Dale Davidson and Lord William Rees-Mogg (P)2019 Simon & Schuster

    Unfortunately distopian for mosty of humanity

    Waited quite a long time for this book to appear on audible. Listened to on x1.4 speed.

    Peter Thiel's preface did not add much value to the book other than to explain it's failure to predict things such as the rise of China. There were several other things in the book that were popular in the news at the time that turned out to be nothing, such as the Y2K millennium bug scare.

    Once you can look beyond the failures of its short term predictions up to the current date, it seems to predict a certain set of possible and potentially likely outcomes in the world. The biggest prediction is the gradual decline of the nation state and the rise and dominance of the sovereign individual.

    I tend to agree that these things seem likely in the major arc of human civilization, although I doubt that anyone alive today will still be around in the future where it can be said that nation states are a thing of the past. Exactly how these things may come to pass is left unclear in the book and up to the reader to imagine.

    We seem well on-target for the progress of digital technology and trends that threaten the displacement of large number of people in the workforce. Despite it's age, the book still has some interesting and though-provoking sections. However talks as though these trends are undeniable and inevitable. That may turn out to be true, but I resent the description of the authors regarding huge amount of the worlds population as the "losers" and "left-behinds", not fit to work or live in such a high-tech world.

    The book has no prescriptions for this unfortunate ~90% of humanity. Instead what is important is that you should focus on staying are up-to-date with all that gadgets and gizmos to ensure that you're in the ~10% of the world's population who can keep a job. It's a very Ayn Randian perspective. As if that alone is a recipe for success, when 9 out of 10 people on the street hate and resent you.

    It seems that the people who praise this book fall in line with the authors to emphasize their desires to see the end of nations, while ignoring that it simultaneously seems to be a net negative to the vast majority of people in the world.

    I am not very sympathetic to the attitude of the book, nor to the people who seem to celebrate it.

    Not to be ignored

    Kudos to the publisher for finally making this available as an audiobook. Given its content, I couldn’t imagine a title better suited to this format. The new 2020 preface by Peter Thiel is short but good. This book is a real eye-opener (or “red pill” if you prefer). The authors would be easy to dismiss as crazed conspiracy theorists or fear-mongers, if it weren’t for the fact that so many of their predictions have come true since the last two decades that the book was published.

    They managed to predict (with alarming accuracy) everything from Bitcoin, e-commerce/Amazon, video chat, the widening effects of globalization, the gig economy (brought on by the microprocessing revolution), the ballooning U.S. college loan debt bubble, to the surprise mainstream popularity of Jordan Peterson and Trump.

    Explains the history and evolution of human power balance, conflict, and war – all the way from the caveman days until the present day Information Age. It then proceeds to forecast where societies are likely to be headed in the future, and does it in an OCD-level of detail. It’s worth noting that the "MTV generation" as described by the book has since been replaced by the "social media generation,” which has had exponentially greater cultural influence worldwide.

    I haven’t read Sapiens or Homo Deus, but I imagine both were heavily inspired by this book.

    If you are interested in understanding the changes that are to come as our world becomes more and more information-centric, there is no other book I could recommend more highly than this.

    Interesting ideas and prescient

    had to keep reminding myself this was written in the 90s. Very prescient and gave food for thought. I don't necessarily agree with everything said but was good to get historical context for some if the ideas in the book. I finished the book but the final third or so of the book was a bit of a slog and preachy

    Interesting read with racist undertones

    Some reasonable points are made, but when it comes to passing discussions about “protected” minorities, the author ignores any acknowledgement of exploitation or institutional racism. It is really unenjoyable to hear someone so tone deaf speak.

    Amazing!

    So insightful! I wish that I had listened to this when it came out in the 90s. life changing information. The information is still so good that today 20+ years later this book will still impact you.

    Amazing book that was way ahead of its time

    Truly an amazing book that was way ahead of its time. The fore sights in everything from the slow deterioration of the EU, to describing bitcoin in detail; this book copyright date is 1997! Truly a timeless look into the future and a great guide on how to best land on the right side of history.

    Quite prescient in many respects, but

    Need to be aware of authors' possible biases. Much to think about. Some points to challenge

    predictions are holding to prove true 15 years lat

    while some of their seemingly radical arguments are still ahead of their time, many are holding to prove true. they anticipated economic crises and growing inflation 25 years ago. it's uncanny how they describe a bitcoin like currency

    Hyper Hyper brave new world.buy bitcoin Idiot!

    was ein flacher magetrr text voll von zukunftskoks. alle wandel earen gross und umwerfend. von Holz auf Kohle auf Benzin auf Strom... alles ist in Entwicklung. immer. ob dieses Buch dabei hilft eine folgeneinschätzung zu ahnen? Nein. es ist zu euphorisch. es genügt sich selbst.
