Ideas are nice, but only executable ideas produce economic and social benefits. The laws of impermanence now rule the marketplace. Execution rules.
Entrepreneurship and self-employment are the strategies most likely to succeed. Startup companies and individual entrepreneurs are the powerhouse of the next economy.
There are tens of thousands of startups – working right now on new systems, tools, solutions, methods, all focused on solving the multi-faceted needs of fellow human beings into the near (and far) future.
They are the adventurous ones. But soon they will be joined by millions more, as the industrial companies they work in give way to the digital information economy. Family businesses, sole traders, all with an imperative to innovate or die in the global network. And the result will be an amazingly diverse ecosystem, constantly evolving and growing.
