We write a lot about shifts disrupting industries here on Big Think. But can a generation's determination to have purpose-driven careers transform our economy?
That's the idea behind Aaron Hurst's book The Purpose Economy, capturing the greater role that purpose is playing in the lives of the young, energetic and innovation-driven workforce of today, known as Millennials.
"We may be entering the fourth economy in our history," Hurst told Big Think. "A fourth economy based on advances on where we are as a society, what are our needs are as a society."
Today's big idea explores the purpose economy--what is it and where is it taking us.
