The Nature of the Future: Dispatches from the Socialstructed World outlines Marina’s vision of a new world we are moving into, in which amplified individuals—people empowered with technologies and connections to each other—can do the kinds of things previously only large organizations or no organization could. In the book, Marina describes how this new way of creating value is already transforming many sectors, from education to banking, governance, science, and health. The changes underway are exciting and challenging, as they require us to re-think existing institutional structures, processes, and management paradigms. Marina hopes to catalyze discussions about these important issues and engage people in building the foundations for the new socialstructed economy and society.
