PHIL BOWERMASTER: Abundance Is Our Future (and We All Know It).

I got to participate in a live online event yesterday talking with Abundance authors Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler. What a treat. I put myself in the queue for questions and asked the authors the following: now that the book has been out for a few weeks, how has it been going dealing with the media?

Owing to the fierce devotion the media has to painting a bleak picture of what’s occurring in the world today and to drawing up even grimmer scenarios for the future, you would think that the constant media exposure of a book tour would generate a lot of friction, or at least tension. But no. Both authors report that they’ve been pleasantly surprised by how well everyone, or at least most everyone, is taking the news that the world is not going to hell in a handbasket.

Why is that? I think it’s because most of them, deep down, don’t really believe their own narrative.

Well, they shouldn’t.
