America 2029 is the integration of countless technical concepts, from the world's leading thinkers. Here is just a brief list:
  • Economist, entrepreneur, and author Paul Zane Pilzer: We never run out of resources, since creative humans always come up with new resources. This is not an excuse to abuse the environment, but from an economic standpoint, this means that we don't have to hoard things. We don't have to over-value oil or gold. This concept led to a secret breakthrough at America 2029.
  • Inventor, researcher, futurist, and author Ray Kurzweil is tracking the progress of technology and biotechnology, and is predicting a major breakthrough around the year 2029. America 2029 was founded on the principle that knowing about the future helps us to shape the present.

  • Einstein's brain: A number of reliable sources report that Einstein's brain had an appreciably large number of connections than the average human. As an analogy, society should grow smarter as it increases the number of connections between distinct ideas. America 2029 uses the Net 2029 model to rapidly increase connectivity through segments of society. Connectivity can be increased both within and across what marketing guru and author Seth Godin would call tribes.
  • Economist/author Steven D. Levitt and author Stephen J. Dubner, in their books, Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics, demonstrate how hidden incentive systems create unexpected results. However, they offer hope by suggesting that the right incentive system can create the right behaviors. America 2029 is woven with a complex system of incentives designed to address the greatest challenges of the 21st century.
