The folks at Nine Shift have been consistently brilliant at describing both the problems and their root causes in society. Their book is a great read and I think their solutions sensible:
The problem is exacerbated by the fact that the Industrial Age, and thus its components, are in decline. Here’s an example. The government is funding construction or rebuilding of 10,000 highways, yet driving is in decline. And since society does not really understand the Information Age, we are not “full speed” in the Information Age either.
