What Is The Wealth Singularity

Advancing technology creates new wealth-building opportunities

The Wealth Singularity

All technological advances prompt economic increases. Railroads and highways created entire industries. The internet revolutionized society and prompted gains in productivity and massive new wealth-making opportunities.

Futurists and researches believe that future technological innovations in computing, energy, biology, materials science, and communication will make the old waves of technological change look like ripples.

This era of amazing new technologies has been dubbed the Singularity by futurists, like Ray Kurzweil, who wrote about the event in his book, The Singularity is Near.

And just as the old technologies produced new eras of wealth, this new era of advanced technology will create a Wealth Singularity.
