"Asking the Right Question" by Randy Gage, Author of Risky Is the New Safe
Here's a sampling of some near-future scenarios--and some of the questions they raise. Most important is knowing the difference between asking the wrong question, versus the better one you should ask instead. The risk takers who ask--and are then able to answer--these questions, will be the next generation of dot-com billionaires, political leaders and entrepreneurial visionaries.Questions for Society as a Whole:
- Wrong question: What percentage of GDP should a country's deficit be?
- Better question: Is there some reason to think the laws of arithmetic don't apply to governments?
- Wrong question: Will the euro really collapse?
- Better questions: When the euro collapses, what will that mean for other currencies? And what will those currency fluctuations mean for the value of precious metals? What will happen to the value of precious metals when asteroid mining makes it cheaper to bring them to earth than mine them from the earth?
- Wrong question: How do I protect my brand?
- Better question: Since it's virtually impossible to protect a brand in the new space, what are the best ways to harness social media and web 3.0 to monitor and influence our brand real time?
- Wrong question: Where will we find the money for our kid's college education?
- Better question: Is there a six- or nine-month certification program would be more lucrative to my child than an MBA or even a PhD degree?

I do not want to dismiss the value of his viewpoint but I always come away empty from his material.
Hey I do believe in my self, and like everyone who has half a brain can see the memes that are foisted on a consumer society. Some how the connect to the wealth consciousness he espouses and the one that I currently operate with, seems to allude me.
When life gives me lemons I make lemonade,I have immense gratitude for what I have yet. Though I have yet to learn how to get to this level Randy speaks of through reading his material.
Politically incorrect, Randy invites us to rethink our business totally out of the box.
What I most like about the Randy's book is wath I less like, because it's right where my deepest beliefs find challenge.
If you want to question your harmful paradigms about wealth and money, you MUST read this book.
If you are an entrepreneur, you MUST read this book
If you are a leader (or are in the way to become one, you MUST read this book
If you want to take your business to the next nibel, you MUST read this book
If you want to look at you in the mirror to see you face to face with all your limitations about abundance, you MUST read this book.
Thanks Randy for so much inspiration, reflection and productive anger.

Randy Gage is confronting. He tells you what you need to hear not necessarily what you want to hear. For that reason he is not for everyone. Some people just aren't ready. However if you are looking to be challenged, stretched and stimulated then Randy is your man.
This book doesn't disappoint. He is true to form and gives us plenty to think about and what the future could look like. Challenging long held paradigms and daring us to truly think about things.
you can't just read this book once. You read it once then go back and absorb it. Then again to take notes.
I can't wait for his next one.
Randy Gage describes some interesting topics about taking advantage of the facts that we are leaving the old economy behind.
If You have not realised at least one subject that will render you a million dollar within a year from now - You have not paying attention!
The sequences of acts forms a Rock Opera and if you listen carefully You will hear the music withinit sublimary.
Go get it or get back on the fence watching the world pass by.
Get in to action and dont be a walking sleeping pill.
Want to get a extraordinary life ? Act extraordinary! And...
The time for thinking different is here and this book is a very simple way of explaining to people, that things that worked yesterday is not going to work forever, there will be times that change are needed and it is NOW!
Would recommend this to everyone alive.
I also enjoyed Why You're Dumb, Sick, and Broke and how to get Smart, Healthy, and Rich.
