The Industrial Revolution, powered by oil and other fossil fuels, is spiraling into a dangerous endgame. The price of gas and food are climbing, unemployment remains high, the housing market has tanked, consumer and government debt is soaring, and the recovery is slowing. Facing the prospect of a second collapse of the global economy, humanity is desperate for a sustainable economic game plan to take us into the future. Here, Jeremy Rifkin explores how Internet technology and renewable energy are merging to create a powerful "Third Industrial Revolution." He asks us to imagine hundreds of millions of people producing their own green energy in their homes, offices, and factories, and sharing it with each other in an "energy internet," just like we now create and share information online. Rifkin describes how the five-pillars of the Third Industrial Revolution will create thousands of businesses, millions of jobs, and usher in a fundamental reordering of human relationships, from hierarchical to lateral power, that will impact the way we conduct commerce, govern society, educate our children, and engage in civic life. Rifkin's vision is already gaining traction in the international community. The European Union Parliament has issued a formal declaration calling for its implementation, and other nations in Asia, Africa, and the Americas, are quickly preparing their own initiatives for transitioning into the new economic paradigm. The Third Industrial Revolution is an insider's account of the next great economic era, including a look into the personalities and players — heads of state, global CEOs, social entrepreneurs, and NGOs — who are pioneering its implementation around the world.
The author explores periods of rapid technological change for coincidences of widening inequality and slowing productivity growth.
The first seven chapters of this book discuss the important developments and events since 1929. Business, labour, agriculture, and government policy receive frequent attention as do the key individuals who shaped the past. Chapters eight and nine discuss present issues: the legacy of deregulation, the overburdened infrastructure, environmental abuse, urban problems, and health care expenses. The last two chapters discuss what the author calls the Third Industrial Revolution, the changes created by microprocessors, lasers, fibre optics, biogenetics, etc; the author believes this transformation will be given more profound than the First Industrial Revolution (which ushered in the machine age at the beginning of the 19th century) or the Second (the age of the automobile, electricity, radio, and large-scale chemical production).
In a world without telecoms... we'd have to invent them. The role of telecoms goes well beyond the finie daily stories of using the Internet or our mobile phones. Their impact on the development of Society, business and even countries is increasingly significant. The authors of this book, two distinguished telecoms specialists, décode the full magnitude of the telecommunication sector using resources from not only the fields of economics and technology, but also history and sociology. The book takes an audacious stance: it places telecoms in the context of a third industrial revolution, that of the digital age, equivalent to the steam engine and railroads of the first industrial révolution. It shows how information and communication technologies (ICTs) are an essential part of our economy, and how they increasingly shape and structure other sectors (tele-services, tele-medicine, etc.). With great insight, the authors explore various key telecoms trends to answer the questions: how do we reduce the digital divide? What new consumer habits stem from ICTs? And, finally, what is their impact on the development of emerging countries ?
Asks whether and to what effect the widespread adoption of digital technology has led to large-scale or structural economic changes in business.
First published in 1989, Technology and Development in the Third Industrial Revolution is a significant contribution to history.
