Program Description

America is entering a period of fundamental reinvention on a scale seen only a handful of times in its history. Mr. Leyden makes the case that we are about to enter 10 to 20 years of explosive innovation across many fields, from energy to education to government. He lays out the changes to look for as we abandon many of the systems of the 20th century and rebuild systems that will work in in the emerging all-digital, fully global, more sustainable 21st century world. He explains the ramifications on the economy, society, and civic life, as well as on all businesses and organizations. Mr. Leyden makes analogies to previous periods when America has faced similar deep structural changes and unprecedented challenges, and transformed itself through bursts of widespread innovation. His positive story of how Americans will once again transform our way of life and lead the rest of the world leaves people of all political persuasions inspired.
