In Unlimited Wealth Pilzer explains how we live in a world of unlimited physical resources because of rapidly advancing technology and how to prosper in this environment. After reading this book, the late Sam Walton, founder of Wal-Mart, said that he was “amazed at Pilzer’s business capacity" and his “ability to put it into layman’s terms." Pilzer’s methods for predicting and managing technological change have been widely adopted by many of the world’s leading corporations.
In The Theology of Economics–God Wants You To Be Rich, Pilzer explains how the foundation of our economic system is based on our religious heritage.

It has been published in 18 languages.
