Summary

A powerful new kind of competitive advantage is now possible thanks to technological and social disruptions that are already occurring. These disruptions revolutionize how companies can partner to create new growth. The Reciprocity Advantage shares a model for creating that growth: define your right-of-way (the underutilized resources you already own that you can share with others), partner to do what you can’t do alone, experiment to learn, and scale the new business at low risk.

  

Reciprocity and advantage are words that are not normally seen together, but reciprocity—giving now to get later—will become a normal part of winning in the future. The Reciprocity Advantage shows you how to leverage new forces like digital natives and cloud-served supercomputing now into massively scalable, profitable, incremental growth for your business.



Provocative and pragmatic, leading ten-year forecaster Bob Johansen and experienced business developer Karl Ronn describe how to lean in to disruptions to create new growth for your business. They include actual cases showing early successes for a range of companies and nonprofits like IBM, Microsoft, Google, Apple, and TED. They then provide key exercises to define your promising new ideas and nurture them into healthy new businesses. 

 

Their recommendations are based on practical experience in managing the problems of new business creation and many years of helping others see the future more clearly. Distilled from hands-on work, this book gets you started today on creating your own reciprocity advantage.

    Water is in everything, connecting us all in one way or another, including our family’s wealth and health. But here’s the problem: water’s value went missing from the economy when the EPA came on the scene in the 1970s. The government gave water a much higher value, but it never disclosed that value to the American people. As a result, we have experienced water inflation ever since. Over time that hidden inflation placed a new burden on the financial dreams of the nation. The only way to close that gap and mitigate the rising seas and shrinking freshwater supplies is to put water back in our money. Ultimately we only have two choices on how the price of water will rise in our future: on our terms or someone else’s. Will we invest in our children and grandchildren through water, or pay tolls to corporations for it? Waconomics offers domestic and global solutions for citizens, corporations, and governments alike. We can save the American dream with water!  
    PROMISE
    Every dollar that Waconomics returns in profit directly goes to Water M. Mission, a nonprofit that stands up for water—that believes in World Water Day, every day! One hundred percent is allocated into a philanthropic water mutual fund to be used for effective projects and innovative water solutions around the globe. WM Mission was created to educate the fortunate, provide quality water for every nation and tribe, and use water as a catalyst for worldwide economic liberation.
