About this book

If man’s next big step is to live and work in space, then what will everyone do out there that is so different from what we are now doing here on Earth? As the future of space comes into focus it is clear that  profit and power are the core elements of the new space economy. This entertaining and informative book looks at human settlement in space as a mainstream business opportunity for investors, entrepreneurs and far-sighted individuals seeking to secure their place in the innovative commercial space sector. Dr. Jack Gregg presents a unique 5-phase development roadmap that shows how space will grow from a frontier economy to a mature integrated market. Written in simple, non-technical language, this book answers such questions as:
• What is the new industrial space economy?
• What are the challenges and roadblocks on the way to a robust space economy?
• How will the rapid growth of the new space economy impact commerce back on Earth?
• How can one best invest in profitable space-related enterprises? 
The Cosmos Economy is for readers who hope to be better equipped and more informed about the new space economy; and Investors, entrepreneurs, and futurists who wants to learn how to take part in the business opportunities of the new high frontier of commercial space.

Jack Gregg offers the primer to understanding how commerce, investment and entrepreneurship will be changed by the final frontier.” (Shelli Brunswick, COO, The Space Foundation)

Gregg brings both analysis and creativity to his subject, providing a roadmap for the development of the space economy and answers to some of the most-asked questions from skeptics and enthusiasts alike. You will be inspired by the future he projects, and…spread that inspiration to others.” (Prof. Matthew Weinzeirl, the Joseph and Jacqueline Elbling Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School)

O'Connell, Director, Office of Space Commerce, U.S. Department of Commerce)
