Third Industrial Revolution

In this new VICE video, Jeremy Rifkin describes many aspects of what he calls the Third Industrial Revolution. Rifkin’s work illuminates many aspects of the emerging world anticipated by R. Buckminster Fuller over 50 years ago, including technological ephemeralization, accelerating acceleration of many global trends, regenerative consumption, education automation, networked spontaneous cooperation, distributed/decentralized energy infrastructure, and increasing recognition of the critical importance of humanity’s common wealth.
