Customer Review

on 19 May 2014
Full of many inciteful ideas on how our economic system will be transformed over the coming decades, making life ultimately more purposeful and meaningful than the goods and services that we consume. The irony of it all is as Rifkin says, is that the success of capitalism leads to its own demise; something he by no means regrets. Underscoring the complex, the good and the bad within the capitalist system, (environmental degradation, exploitation of. Workers etc) he is hopeful of the coming era of abundance, an idea made possible by the coming together of various networks , allowing products, services and communications to be scaled laterally rather than centrally. A rather mixed obituary of an economic system, but a thoroughly enjoyable read.
