You’ve probably noticed things changing quickly recently. Really quickly.
So has anthropologist Grant McCracken, author of Culture and Consumption (1988 and part II in 2005), Flock and Flow (2006) and most recently Transformations (2008). He’s developed many insights into the consequences of living and transacting in such a harsh, fluid environment.

* How do corporations and markets deal with these changes?
* When will we feel all this? how?
