Perry and Lester invent things – like an entirely new economic system. Soon barefoot bankers are criss-crossing the nation, microinvesting in high-tech communal start-ups. Together they transform a country, and journalist Suzanne Church is there to document it. But a new economic system requires a whole new belief system -- and there are plenty of non-believers out there. Fizzing with bold ideas about the future and how our lives will look, this book takes Perry, Lester and Suzanne on an unforgettable journey – bring them together only to break them apart as they try to discover how to live in an ever-changing world.
