This final volume of Toffler's trilogy argues that the control of knowledge has become the principal means to create wealth and power. In a way, the book predicted the productivity explosion of the 90's and the birth of the knowledge economy even before the "invention" of the www. His arguments about the growing conflict between the flexibility required by the knowledge economy and the inherent inflexibility of bureaucratic structures were a natural continuation of his Third Wave vs. Second Wave mentality: "...all bureaucracies discourage out-of-frame thinking and the examination of root premises." This book, along with "The Third Wave", provides useful methodological metaphors for critically analyzing 21st century Jewish life and proposing alternative Jewish futures based on the opportunities of globalization. This is what I tried to do in my book "The Optimistic Jew: a Positive Vision for the Jewish People in the 21st Century".
