Thanks to mobile computing, America is about to be reborn.
This growing technological wave will make the dollar stronger, spread American values throughout the globe, and establish English as the single most important language on Earth.
In fact, our leading position in the rise of smartphones and tablet computers makes it certain that the United States will undergo a major revival and rebranding.
Along the way America will re-emerge as the dominant force in technology and economics in the world – by far – as soon as the end of this decade.
This new breed of American-made tech will also improve the lives of billions of people around the world by providing them with better health care and education.
Now, admittedly you've heard this bullish story from me before. But here's the thing: these aren't my insights.
They belong to a hard-hitting high-tech executive who is a renowned expert on the subject. His name is Michael Saylor, and he is the CEO of MicroStrategy Inc. (NASDAQ:MSTR), a leader in business intelligence.
More to the point, Saylor is the author of the hot new nonfiction book called "The Mobile Wave: How Mobile Intelligence Will Change Everything."
In the book, he makes the case that we've passed the tipping point in bringing cutting-edge software to the world. From healthcare apps to text books, it's all on your smartphone or tablet.
The book is a fast and compelling read. If you want to take a look for yourself, you can find "The Mobile Wave" on Amazon.com.
As befits the topic, I read Saylor's book on my iPad…
Michael Saylor on the Promise of America
Intrigued by what he had to say, I got in touch with Saylor by phone, and we chatted for nearly an hour.
Some of you may find his comments controversial. After all, it's the "in" thing these days to bash America as a once-great nation losing its technical lead to China and India.
But Saylor disagrees. He believes mobile software and the wireless Web are major trends that will give the U.S. its high-tech rebirth and bring billions out of poverty in the Third World at the same time.
Here's how he sees it…
The Long Reach and Power of Mobile Tech
America's mobile tech is already spreading at least the idea of democracy to the Middle East, Saylor notes. Just look at the key role of social media in the so-called Arab Spring.
Protesters used software networks like YouTube, Google, Twitter, and Facebook to spread their message and organize the revolution that turned a dozen nations upside down. Indeed, those uprisings have shaken Arab nations to the core, toppling leaders in Egypt and Libya and causing mass protests in Iran.
No doubt, radical Islam remains a threat to freedom. But Saylor seems to think that movement is reaching its zenith as the mobile wave bears down upon repressive regimes. This trend will greatly enhance women's rights in the Middle East and developing nations, Saylor told me.
Smartphones and tablets are like a Pandora "s Box: Once the masses gain exposure to the Western world's knowledge and way of thinking about women, there's just no turning back.
I'll have more of Saylor's insights to share with you in my next two reports. We'll deal with what investors must know about Apple Inc.'s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad and three ways to make mobile commerce more secure as we convert to digital money.
For now, let me close with one more of Saylor's big-picture views about the impact of the mobile wave:
Like I keep saying, technology will save America. Stay tuned for the next two reports…
