Book Review: The Truth About Your Future by Ric Edelman
He enjoys picking companies or funds that anticipate where the world is going in 20 to 30 years. He invests in trends like robotics, artificial intelligence, and the blockchain. Everything on our planet is about to be different in astonishing ways, so what should you do about it? In the first half of the book he presents a compelling case that our future — even in our own lifetime — will look quite different from the present. What does that mean? When you track exponential, or compounding, growth over time you see those lines that slope gradually upward in the beginning, then turn a bit steeper, until finally the line becomes nearly asymptotic — pointing straight upwards. I happen to agree with Edelman that in finance, technology, and economics we need to understand compound growth rates — whether about computing power or the growth of money, because the end results go further than our simple brains at first expect.
