Take the leap into a new era of viral business-and tap into a billion-plus consumer base In Jump Point, Silicon Valley veteran Tom Hayes crafts a visionary, exhilarating, and often startling look at our fast-approaching business future. Welcome to the world of "pandemic economics;" a nonstop global economy characterized by network nation states, billion-selling products, and trillion-dollar markets. Jump Point illustrates how the next economy will arrive at an inflection point just 1000 days away. Managers and organizations that survive the "jump" will find themselves in a strange new landscape of unfamiliar players and unforgiving power laws. From shape-shifting consumers, to competitive jihads, to the wealth-evaporating forces of runaway "mudflation," Hayes takes you on an eye-opening ride to the world of the jump point and beyond.
