Nice quote from Thomas Jefferson, found in an “old” book about the future, “2020 Vision”, by Stan Davis and Bill Davidson…More comments about this book will be placed here soon…

    Yes, it is true that we can learn a lot about today’s and tomorrow’s life and business by reading “old” books… As promised before, here is my comment of Davis’ and Davidson’s book “2020 Vision” published in 1991; the following thoughts particularly caught my attention:
    • The emergence of bio-chip and bio-economy…
    • The emergence of info-mediaries – linking buyers and sellers electronically…
    • An 80-20 Rule for the 2020s: “By 2020, 80 percent of business profits and market values will come from that part of the enterprise that is build around info-business… The new info business will include services that provide turbocharged information, industry-wide product offerings, preview, twenty-four-hour access and self-design features…
    • “Do you and your company spend less then two thirds of your time and energies on your business, and more than one-third on your organization? If so… it may be time to kill your organization before it kills your business… The best place to look for the basis of organization change is in the future businesses, and the worst place to look is in the current organization”.
