This Could Be Our Future: Kickstarter Co-Founder Yancey Strickler’s New Book Out Tomorrow

Western society is trapped by the belief that maximizing wealth and self-interest is the right thing to do, says Yancey Strickler. In his new book This Could Be Our Future—out tomorrow—the crowdfunding mastermind explores how we can liberate ourselves by expanding our understanding of value

Our value system is broken, operating on the assumption that financial gain is the only true good. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In his new book This Could Be Our Future: A Manifesto for a More Generous World, Yancey Strickler offers a blueprint for transforming our profit-hungry world by assigning “rational value” to non-monetary aspects of modern life, such as community, purpose, and sustainability. New York Times bestselling author Daniel Pink calls it the “the conversation starter our world needs,” while renowned psychologist Adam Grant hails Strickler’s vision as “audacious and elevating.” At a time where wealth inequality has skyrocketed to unimaginable heights, Strickler offers a lucid and ambitious plan to forge a more equitable society.
