Daniel Pink wrote the following in his vital book, A Whole New Mind:
"The last few decades have belonged to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of mind--computer programmers who could crank code, lawyers who could craft contracts, MBAs who could crunch numbers."
"But the keys to the kingdom are changing hands."
"The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind--creators and emphathizers, pattern recognizers, and meaning makers. These people--artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big-picture thinkers--will now reap society's richest rewards and share its greatest joys."
