An Optimistic Investor’s Perspective on Innovation

Ray Kurzweil maps out an optimistic view of the future with a tremendous amount of data supporting his main thesis — that the rate of innovation is increasing on a geometric scale. This means that innovation is happening faster every day. … The data supports the fact that we’ll see more innovation in the next ten years than we’ve seen in the last one hundred years. If you are an investor or entrepreneur, this is the best time in history to make a fortune and create a better world.”
