Abstract:

"2099: A Eutopia offers a provocative glimpse into the daily life of a thriving inner-city community a hundred years from now. Yorick Blumenfeld imagines a better world, not a perfect one. He provides an impressionistic panorama of what such a Eutopia might offer the average citizen in 2099 - particularly in terms of its intimacy, creativity and spirituality.

Alongside the technological wonders of MI counsellors (endowed with Machine Intelligence), smart robots and 'improved' babies, ordinary human beings will still have to cope, but with far less stress than they do today. In this challenging narrative, the ravages of a money-driven market have been left far behind and replaced with a viable credit system that enhances stability rather than growth, and eliminates the glaring inequalities of capitalism."--BOOK JACKET.
