Peter Diamandis: Abundance is our future

Posted on 01 March 2012 by admin

I’m not saying we don’t have our set of problems — climate crisis, drugstore species extinction, water and energy shortage — we surely do. [But] ultimately we knock them down.” (Peter Diamandis)

 

 

From TED.com

Why you should listen to him:
Peter Diamandis is the founder of the X Prize Foundation, a nonprofit whose mission is simply “to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.” By offering a big cash prize for a specific accomplishment, the X Prize stimulates competition and excitement around some of the planet’s most important goals.
Diamandas’ background is in space exploration — before the X Prize, he ran a company that studied low-cost launching technologies and another company that took civilians on rides into the upper atmosphere. But though the X Prize’s first $10 million went to a space-themed challenge, Diamandas’ goal now is to extend the prize into health care, social policy, education and many other fields that could use a dose of competitive innovation.
