Many people are gloomy about the global economy; on top of that pessimism, today’s outmoded educational systems, obsolete business models and irresponsible governments accentuate the feeling of malaise. Randy Gage, a “prosperity coach” and prolific author, advises that problems present opportunities and that the way to get ahead is by being a contrarian. Gage’s views can be a little far out at times, like when he predicts a near future in which animals take over people’s jobs, employers clone workers and virtual sex becomes a reality. He covers too much terrain to be in-depth about any one thing and verges on the platitudinous, yet he clearly conveys his message of self-reliance, risk taking and individualism. getAbstract suggests his concise look at what may come to open-minded entrepreneurs, free-market thinkers or anyone who wants an unconventional – and contrarian – view of the world.
