Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Professor Klaus Schwab is the Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, the International Organization for Public Private Cooperation headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. Schwab uniquely combines the experience of being an academic, an entrepreneur and a statesman. He has been at the centre of global affairs for over 45 years. The World Economic Forum is a comprehensive and integrated platform for leaders of all stakeholder groups from around the world – business, government and civil society – to come together in a shared commitment to improve the state of the world. The Forum is independent and impartial. Its activities are shaped by a unique institutional culture founded on stakeholder theory, a concept which Schwab pioneered in 1971 and which asserts that organizations are accountable to all parts of society.

Klaus Schwab is uniquely qualified to write such as book. He founded in 1971 the World Economic Forum that organizes the yearly Davos conference where leaders from companies, governments and scientists meet in Davos. In between he meets with influential leaders from all over the world and organizes other conferences and directs research projects about for example competitiveness.
An interesting and typical example, unknown to me, is the establishment of OpenAI in 2015 with the goal to "advance digital intelligence (including artificial intelligence) in the way that is most likely to benefit humanity as a whole, unconstrained by a need to generate financial return.” Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, Solar City and Space X and a net worth of 12 billion is one of the founders. Google, Apple and IBM, also support this project. $1 billion has already been secured to finance the development. Artificial intelligence is a good example of a development with the potential to deliver disaster and great benefit. It is a development that cannot be stopped.
In most cases the author does not recommend what should be done. Instead he formulates questions that need to be answered which can be frustrating. However it is the right way as it is extremely difficult to determine what the right answer should be, requiring a great amount of effort.
The author refers to all these changes together as the “fourth industrial revolution”; an alternative would have been “a societal revolution”.
At the end of the book the author recommends an interesting way in how to develop answers that in some respects are similar to the Buddhist way of thinking.
He recommends at the end of the book to develop answers using four intelligences. First, "contextual Intelligence" defined as "the ability and willingness to anticipate emerging trends and connect the dots." In Buddhism this is similar to "Dependent Origination" referring of a stream of thinking and events distinguishing between ideas and the conditions for ideas to flourish
Second, with "heart", referring to "emotional intelligence, self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation empathy and social skills." In Buddhism the word “heart” is also used, with the emphasis on training the mind, staying calm under all circumstances, self confidence, self-discipline, compassion and reducing the influence of self-centeredness, anger, hatred, the so called disturbing emotions.
Third, "inspired intelligence - soul" refers to the continuous search for meaning and purpose, a focus of common purpose. In Buddhism this is referred as the "Right View" or as a "holistic view” that considers all causes and effects that interacted in the past and will in the future. The right view means one knows what one can and should do that is of benefit to self and others.
The fourth "Body, physical intelligence," refers to keeping the body in good shape and “Remain calm under pressure”. In Buddhism remaining calm is heart and mind. Buddha concluded that in this case the "middle way" was the right path that is no extreme austerity and no eating more than necessary for good health.
The author recommends that only diverse groups that understand interconnectedness and are open-minded using these four intelligences will be able to develop answers to the questions the author has raised. In Buddhism there is a strong emphasis on the merit of curiosity and seeing the reality, the way things really are. There is no such emphasis on "group think" which is an addition, and a good idea.
A book is well worth to read.
