A book author called Conrad Prämböck released a Book in 2012 (one year after The Millionaire Fastlane Book) promoting life as employee.

His argument is:
In the most income classes, except the highest, employees earn more than entrepreneurs.
The entrepreneur dream is propaganda to most people.


I obviously do not know the contents yet, but does anybody have more information on it?

Don't know or care about the book but I see nothing wrong with promoting the Slowlane to Slowlaners. Most Slowlaners, sad to say, don't have what it takes to be a Fastlane entrepreneur anyway. They learn about it and they say it's too hard. So in that way, it makes sense to promote the Slowlane.

Also, it's easier to sell the Slowlane because there's more Slowlaners. MJ's books sold like $2m or something in its lifetime (care to comment @MJ DeMarco? Or not). David Ramsay (popular Slowlane author) sells that in the first week of his books' releases. Just makes sense from a money perspective. (I pulled those numbers out my a$$ but you should get the point)

My problem is with the false promises. "You'll retire rich!" No you won't. You'll retire maybe with a house and some liquid cash, and that's a pretty good scenario. The math doesn't check out for 'retire rich'. Most people are lucky to even retire. And the social safety nets provide basically the bare minimum.

Also the Slowlane dream is not an easy one either. Cutting out life's joys while working overtime and scrimping and saving for 40 years just for a chance at retiring with a house and a decent pile of cash? Kind of sucks to be honest. Most people can't do it. It's too hard.

Curious, why are you asking about this book? If you're here, should you not have already decided that the Fastlane life is for you? You don't need anything else to confirm your suspicions.

But that book assumes that the possibility of entrepreneurship does exist, and to avoid it.

Slowlaners
mostly do not even know that entrepreneurship is even a possibility.

It is even good.
If literally everybody became entrepreneur, there would be no employees to work for entrepreneurs.
Additionally, this would make entrepreneurship less exclusive and privileged. (privileges that fastlaners build for themselves up.)

I am asking, whether anybody has information about the book's contents.
I am 100% fastlane, but I am curious about how slowlaners justify their mediocrity to themselves.

Wasn't he dead in the 19th century already?
What are some book titles and contents with slowlane promotions?

Who else is a slowlane author?

Even assuming such a phenomenon might happen is wrong. Imagine the opposite - the world WITHOUT entrepreneurs. There would be no employers and thus no employees.
But assuming entrepreneurship gets more and more popular:
a) The amount of VALUE in the world would increase DRAMATICALLY. Just imagine all the people around you started thinking how to make others lives better.
b) There would be more B2B relations, like freelancers or small businesses instead of employee - employer relations.
c) The increased demand for workers would increase their wages and thus increase the amount of people satisfied with being an employee.

There will ALWAYS be ways to create value in massive amounts. There is no pie to be shared, no need to worry that someone will steal your privileges. When you create more, you earn more.
