Power to the Person: Individualization and Value Pluralism
“Wealth is not about having a lot of money; it's about having a lot of options.”
—Chris Rock, comedian
AT A GLANCE INDIVIDUALIZATION AND VALUE PLURALISM
Five Essential Points
- Mounting affluence will drive growing individualism in emerging societies. Greater income levels will give people easier access to cultural influences, which will expose them to a wider range of life and career options.
- People's values will increasingly pluralize. Higher incomes will also grant individuals the freedom to follow their unique priorities and tastes when choosing between these new options.
