From the New York Times bestselling author of The $100 Startup, comes a captivating guide that explains how to thrive in today's turbulent global economy.

Burdened with massive debt, stagnant wages and the ever-rising cost of living, a growing number of millennials and gen-Z are abandoning the traditional nine-to-five model of work, instead turning to the ecosystem of largely unregulated, decentralized platforms to pursue a host of novel ways to make money.

In Gonzo Capitalism, New York Times bestselling author and serial entrepreneur Chris Guillebeau explores this brave new world – from the Texas software rep who earned $80,000 sending potatoes in the mail, to the British teenager who earned nearly $500,000 naming other people’s babies, to the community of online gamers getting ‘paid to play’.

Along the way, he shows you how our economy really works and reveals how you can capitalize on the new tools and platforms at our disposal, and come up with your own unconventional ways to turn your time and talents into income.
