'The Nature of the Future: Dispatches from the Socialstructed World,' by Marina Gorbis is a much talked about book that was released earlier this year in April. Gorbis is the executive director of the Palo Alto-based organization, Institute for the Future, which is a non-profit organization that has a futures-oriented approach to its collaborative methods and action-oriented projects.
What's in it for social business? "For social entrepreneurs and philanthropists, the book will be most relevant when it addresses the issue of scale," writes Lucy Bernholz, who reviewed Nature of the Future for the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) in "The 'Just Right' Future." "Gorbis, for example, notes the tension between big investors and crowdfunded startups."
