Tracing the experiences of three laid-off professionals, this novel follows each person's search for employment as Baby Boomers. One of them is contacted by a secret online group of activists called Walden 4G. Its mission is to hack investment bankers and hedge funders and destroy their hold on America's workplace. As they put it, they practice “economic disobedience. Drawing on the self-reliance of Thoreau's Walden and the quest for an American utopia in B. F. Skinner's Walden Two, Walden 4G shows the three job seekers a different way forward—one that offers great potential but also requires great change. Each one of them is confronted with a stark choice: accept a familiar but diminished future or change themselves and reclaim the hopefulness of the American Dream.
