What would a billion digital nomads—full-time or part-time travelers who work anywhere they can access the internet—mean for the future of work and global culture?
The idea of location independence is nothing new. As far back as the 1960s, sci-fi writer Arthur C. Clarke said people would be able to “work from Bali, just as well as from London” by the 2010s. Lauren Razavi was one of the early adopters who proved him right, building a life and career on the road. Today, she’s one of the digital nomad movement’s leading voices and activists. In her debut book, Razavi delves into the origins of digital nomads and the history of work from anywhere. She introduces us to the people, values, and ideas shaping a borderless world.
Global Natives is a vivid, thoughtful exploration of how technology has changed the human relationship with place. The rise of remote work, travel incentive programs targeting digital workers, and nomad visas mark both an enormous market opportunity, and a new philosophy of how work should fit into our lives, rather than life fitting around work. But the path forward is anything but clear. Remote work and nomad visas could be the beginning of an era of greater global mobility and equality of opportunity across borders. Or we could see ongoing border restrictions, increased scrutiny and deportations, and lost opportunities for both individual nomads and the modern knowledge economy.
This guide is essential reading for remote workers, entrepreneurs, business leaders, investors, and anybody else who cares about building a future of freedom, prosperity, and mobility.
