Two renowned investment advisors and authors of the bestseller The Great Reckoning bring to light both currents of disaster and the potential for prosperity and renewal in the face of radical changes in human history as we move into the next century.

The Sovereign Individual details strategies necessary for adapting financially to the next phase of Western civilization.

Few observers of the late twentieth century have their fingers so presciently on the pulse of the global political and economic realignment ushering in the new millennium as do James Dale Davidson and Lord William Rees-Mogg. Their bold prediction of disaster on Wall Street in Blood in the Streets was borne out by Black Tuesday. In their ensuing bestseller, The Great Reckoning, published just weeks before the coup attempt against Gorbachev, they analyzed the pending collapse of the Soviet Union and foretold the civil war in Yugoslavia and other events that have proved to be among the most searing developments of the past few years.

In The Sovereign Individual, Davidson and Rees-Mogg explore the greatest economic and political transition in centuries—the shift from an industrial to an information-based society. This transition, which they have termed "the fourth stage of human society," will liberate individuals as never before, irrevocably altering the power of government. This outstanding book will replace false hopes and fictions with new understanding and clarified values.

This is the best book I've read since Sapiens (far less mainstream, though).

It’s a good book, but this is more like the next step — the Sovereign Collective.

Good books often sell like crazy when they launch - and then fade away. Great books often don't sell when they launch - and then become classics decades later. The Sovereign Individual is a great book. Imagine writing this in 1997.

its a great read, you'll enjoy

Sovereign Individual (1997) a must read book. Here is a teaser:

This book blew my mind. Predicted crypto, COVID, and more. Watch this vid breaking it down 👇

I have purchased and given away over 50 copies of The Sovereign Individual. I believe some knowledge is so important that we must distribute physical and digital copies across the globe. The Sovereign Individual is the most important book any person can read today.

I was thinking about this book while tweeting this.. might give it another read.. it’s been very influential on my thinking since the first read..

The Sovereign Individual (1999) is a guide for navigating the current transition from the Industrial to Information Age. Remarkably, it predicted the rise of 'digital gold'.
“If our deductions are correct, you stand at the threshold of the most sweeping revolution in history.”

In reply to "What is the most important book you've ever read?".

A bit weighty and I don't necessarily agree with all the propositions in it, it does make me think about the way the world is going through a different lens than I previously did.
