Ten Reasons to be Optimistic has a bunch of good, big ideas to make you think about the future with less cynicism. A few with huge lifestyle implications across society:
- Women are slowly gaining power and influence in our society. Young women are better educated and better informed than any generation in our history.
- Not having children is no longer, for the first time in our culture, considered selfish or anti-social.
- In the next decade much of the baby boom generation will be retiring. That means a huge number of people, a generation with a penchant for change, will suddenly have an enormous amount of time to think, to learn, to do things for reasons other than financial gain.
