The Perfect Storm by Paul Zane Pilzer of opportunity the emerging industries of wellness and network marketing are combining to create today's —and tomorrow's—new wealth.
As an economist, I deal with large-scale trends in the economy, often measured in the billions or trillions of dollars. But people often don’t grasp the meaning of billions and trillions. People aren’t really concerned about “the economy”—they’re concerned about “their economy.” They want to know, “What can I do in this new economy to succeed, to take care of myself and my family?” I wrote The Next Millionaires to explain where our economy has been, where it is today, and where it’s going—but even more importantly, to bring all of this down to the level of “your economy.”
Since 1991, U.S. household wealth quadrupled from $13 trillion to about $52 trillion in 2005. Reading such figures, you might say, “That’s interesting… that sounds like good news.” But it becomes very personal when we look at what this actually means to individual entrepreneurs who are involved in the most economically vibrant emerging new industries.
