HOW THE FUTURE¬†CAN BE WONAuthor:¬†Lars Tvede
Human creativity has been one of the¬†fundamental drivers of civilization¬†and progress ‚Äď solving immense¬†problems, creating opportunities¬†and overcoming enemies like no¬†other force. Often it has baffled its¬†skeptics by finding new and better¬†resources, unexpected environmental¬†technologies and genuinely amazing¬†products that no one had predicted.
