I haven't read this book as of yet, but have found Amy Webb - - and similar futurists - - to be a cutesy, intellectually feckless lot who always discount the biggest factor, the financial side of everything. The best sure bet on the future is the trend against cash transactions [The War on Cash] as they want to extract fees for such and until all cash transactions are online it will be difficult to do so. Note the Harvard shill, Ferguson, coming out against cash transactions recently, falsely proclaiming they aided and abetted drug smuggling and criminality, when Ferguson is really in the employ of the criminals themselves! [In Seattle, as an example, the city with its topography would have greatly benefitted from a city-wide monorail system, yet the powers-that-be {who reside on the Community Development Roundtable} decided such was not to be the case, instead we have the ultra-expensive at-grade subway-like trains, Sound Transit [with their various underground tunnels] and ultra-expensive trolleys [harking back to the early 1900s, for gosh sakes?!] and now the Deep Bore Tunnel, all of which appear to greatly benefit Paul Allen, the local billionaire.
