Author and financial adviser Ric Edelman says that if you want to benefit from impending momentous changes, you must absorb their implications into your worldview and your investment strategy. New and growing “exponential technologies” will affect your life, calling for fresh planning to deal with a new paradigm that has potentially thrilling, disquieting and unfathomable outcomes. Edelman accessibly guides you through the financial impact of robotics, machine learning, nanotech, life-extending medicine, financial tech, and more. He considers the “dark side” of each technology and describes how transformative disruption affects your money management. Edelman predicts the future without equivocation, trusting technology’s impact. He says your lengthy, liberated, joyous future depends on long-term, progress-fueled “compound growth.” While never giving financial advice, getAbstract recommends his comprehensive, organized and cautionary guide to all those planning their financial future.
