The Future of Success Summary

The Future of Success by Robert B. Reich

The internet-driven marketplace offers unprecedented opportunities, but this technology also drives relentless competition. When consumers can change allegiance with the click of a mouse, sellers must make constant improvements - cutting costs, adding value, requiring more time and work from employees whose job stability, in turn, declines daily. In short, the terrific deals of the new economy carry a steep price: more frenzied lives, less security, more economic and social stratification, the loss of time for family, friendship, community and self. Using examples from everyday life, Reich outlines what success is coming to mean in our time - the pitfalls and downturns hidden in the apparent advantages and advances - and suggests how we might create a more balanced society and more satisfying lives.
