Last Show Recap

In the first half, analyst Craig Hulet offered commentary on current events, terrorism, and world conflicts. "It looks to me unbelievably clear that money is going to buy the presidency, and Jeb Bush will be the next president," he declared.

In the latter half, broadcast and print journalist Gary Grossman discussed his research into the chasm between deep time (the scientific estimate that Earth is 4.6 billion years old) and a young Earth (the claim that the planet is only 7-8,000 years old put forth by some religious groups), which serves as the backdrop for his new novel.

Biography:

Alvin and Heidi Toffler are known around the world for their work that has influenced presidents and prime ministers, top leaders in fields ranging from business to non-profit organizations, as well as educators, psychologists and social scientists.Each of their books - which include such classics as Future Shock, The Third Wave, Powershift and War and Anti-War - has been hailed for originality, clarity and unusual insight into the challenges and opportunities racing toward us.

Their newest book, Revolutionary Wealth, attacks key features of conventional economics as it paints the emerging global "wealth system" of the decades ahead.Known for having forecast the acceleration of daily life, the decline of the nuclear family, the spread of loneliness and rise of religion, the Tofflers decades ago also anticipated cloning, virtual reality, niche markets, information overload, work-at-home, product customization, the "de-massification" of the mass media, the threat of terrorism and many other features of contemporary life. But in the Tofflers' works, these disparate forecasts are all mere details of a far larger canvas. Some of them have missed the mark. We are still waiting for the "paperless office." But few today challenge the central, sweeping thesis of their work since the mid-1960s - that a knowledge-based new economy was arising to replace the industrial age. This concept is now accepted currency among governments, economists and thinkers around the world.
