From the New York Times bestselling author of Little Brother, a major novel of the booms, busts, and further booms in store for America
Perry and Lester invent thingsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â€Âseashell robots that make toast, Boogie Woogie Elmo dolls that drive cars. They also invent entirely new economic systems, like the ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“New Work,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â a New Deal for the technological era. Barefoot bankers cross the nation, microinvesting in high-tech communal mini-startups like Perry and LesterÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s. Together, they transform the country, and Andrea Fleeks, a journo-turned-blogger, is there to document it.
Then it slides into collapse. The New Work bust puts the dot.combomb to shame. Perry and Lester build a network of interactive rides in abandoned Wal-Marts across the land. As their rides, which commemorate the New WorkÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s glory days, gain in popularity, a rogue Disney executive grows jealous, and convinces the police that Perry and LesterÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s 3D printers are being used to run off AK-47s.
Hordes of goths descend on the shantytown built by the New Workers, joining the cult. Lawsuits multiply as venture capitalists take on a new investment strategy: backing litigation against companies like Disney. Lester and PerryÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s friendship falls to pieces when Lester gets the ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‹ÂœfatkinsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢ treatment, turning him into a sybaritic gigolo.
Then things get really interesting.
