Nineshift on programme Global Business
"This edition is all about big changes affecting life and work right now, and how they relate to what happened in the industrialised world one hundred years ago
William Draves and Julie Coates are the authors of Nineshift a book all about the nine big changes affecting life and work.
The book is rooted not in big ideas but in small town changes. The authors chart the erosion of a rural town after the car came along, and link it to their own personal experiences.
Here Peter Day visits Draves and Coates in their home town of River Falls, Wisconsin and learns how life in the industrialised world will have changed radically by the year 2020. People, they tell him, will choose not to drive cars, work from home and study online."
