About this item

A stunning look at what will happen to global industry as 3-D printing becomes a worldwide phenomenon. Richard D’Aveni contends that this is beginning to happen now and will have far-reaching effects that most corporate and governmental leaders have yet to anticipate.

Best-selling author Richard D’Aveni contends that the advent of massive, industrial-sized 3-D printing is already happening quietly under the radar, and that it will have a far-reaching impact that most corporate and governmental leaders have yet to anticipate or understand.

3-D printing isn’t just a desktop technology for churning out small trinkets and toys. In this revelatory account, D’Aveni reveals how this breakthrough technology has been secretly adapted by powerful Fortune 500 companies so that they can now manufacture jet engines, huge turbines, automobiles and pretty much everything else in just a matter of days–not weeks or months.

Not only will this amazing technology totally change the landscape of manufacturing everywhere, but as D’Aveni contends, it is also destined to have a dramatic effect on the world economy. A small handful of massively powerful corporations—the pan-industrials—will become as important as any tech giant in structuring the global order.
