Livres de Jeremy Rifkin
In The Zero Marginal Cost Society, New York Times bestselling author Jeremy Rifkin describes how the emerging Internet of Things is speeding us to an era of nearly free goods and services, precipitating the meteoric rise of a global Collaborative Commons and the eclipse of capitalism.
Rifkin uncovers a paradox at the heart of capitalism that has propelled it to greatness but is now taking it to its death—the inherent entrepreneurial dynamism of competitive markets that drives productivity up and marginal costs down, enabling businesses to reduce the price of their goods and services in order to win over consumers and market share. (Marginal cost is the cost of producing additional units of a good or service, if fixed costs are not counted.) While economists have always welcomed a reduction in marginal cost, they never anticipated the possibility of a technological revolution that might bring marginal costs to near zero, making goods and services priceless, nearly free, and abundant, and no longer subject to market forces.
Now, a formidable new technology infrastructure—the Internet of things (IoT)—is emerging with the potential of pushing large segments of economic life to near zero marginal cost in the years ahead. Rifkin describes how the Communication Internet is converging with a nascent Energy Internet and Logistics Internet to create a new technology platform that connects everything and everyone. Billions of sensors are being attached to natural resources, production lines, the electricity grid, logistics networks, recycling flows, and implanted in homes, offices, stores, vehicles, and even human beings, feeding Big Data into an IoT global neural network. Prosumers can connect to the network and use Big Data, analytics, and algorithms to accelerate efficiency, dramatically increase productivity, and lower the marginal cost of producing and sharing a wide range of products and services to near zero, just like they now do with information goods.
The plummeting of marginal costs is spawning a hybrid economy—part capitalist market and part Collaborative Commons—with far reaching implications for society, according to Rifkin. Hundreds of millions of people are already transferring parts of their economic lives to the global Collaborative Commons. Prosumers are plugging into the fledgling IoT and making and sharing their own information, entertainment, green energy, and 3D-printed products at near zero marginal cost. They are also sharing cars, homes, clothes and other items via social media sites, rentals, redistribution clubs, and cooperatives at low or near zero marginal cost. Students are enrolling in free massive open online courses (MOOCs) that operate at near zero marginal cost. Social entrepreneurs are even bypassing the banking establishment and using crowdfunding to finance startup businesses as well as creating alternative currencies in the fledgling sharing economy. In this new world, social capital is as important as financial capital, access trumps ownership, sustainability supersedes consumerism, cooperation ousts competition, and "exchange value" in the capitalist marketplace is increasingly replaced by "sharable value" on the Collaborative Commons.
Rifkin concludes that capitalism will remain with us, albeit in an increasingly streamlined role, primarily as an aggregator of network services and solutions, allowing it to flourish as a powerful niche player in the coming era. We are, however, says Rifkin, entering a world beyond markets where we are learning how to live together in an increasingly interdependent global Collaborative Commons.
Après le succès de La troisième révolution industrielle (plus de 40 000 exemplaires vendus), Jeremy Rifkin présente ici ce que sera la société collaborative de demain. Le prospectiviste de génie y dessine un nouveau paradigme favorisé par l’essor des nouvelles technologies : les communaux collaboratifs.
Après avoir théorisé la Troisième Révolution industrielle (La Troisième Révolution industrielle, LLL, 2012), Jeremy Rifkin s’attaque à la notion de « New Deal Vert ». Il s’agit d’un projet économique et de société, fruit d’une prise de conscience mondiale sur l’état de la planète. Le but : sauver la vie sur Terre, tout simplement.
An urgent plan to confront climate change, transform the American economy, and create a green post-fossil fuel culture.
A new vision for America’s future is quickly gaining momentum. Facing a global emergency, a younger generation is spearheading a national conversation around a Green New Deal and setting the agenda for a bold political movement with the potential to revolutionize society. Millennials, the largest voting bloc in the country, are now leading on the issue of climate change.
While the Green New Deal has become a lightning rod in the political sphere, there is a parallel movement emerging within the business community that will shake the very foundation of the global economy in coming years. Key sectors of the economy are fast-decoupling from fossil fuels in favor of ever cheaper solar and wind energies and the new business opportunities and employment that accompany them. New studies are sounding the alarm that trillions of dollars in stranded fossil fuel assets could create a carbon bubble likely to burst by 2028, causing the collapse of the fossil fuel civilization. The marketplace is speaking, and governments will need to adapt if they are to survive and prosper.
In The Green New Deal, New York Times bestselling author and renowned economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin delivers the political narrative and economic plan for the Green New Deal that we need at this critical moment in history. The concurrence of a stranded fossil fuel assets bubble and a green political vision opens up the possibility of a massive shift to a post-carbon ecological era, in time to prevent a temperature rise that will tip us over the edge into runaway climate change. With twenty-five years of experience implementing Green New Deal–style transitions for both the European Union and the People’s Republic of China, Rifkin offers his vision for how to transform the global economy and save life on Earth.
Imagine waking up one day to find that virtually every activity you engage in outside your immediate family has become a "paid-for" experience. It's all part of a fundamental change taking place in the nature of business, contends Jeremy Rifkin. After several hundred years as the dominant organizing paradigm of civilization, the traditional market system is beginning to deconstruct. On the horizon looms the Age of Access, an era radically different from any we have known.
Never has the world seemed so completely united-in the form of communication, commerce, and culture-and so savagely torn apart-in the form of war, financial meltdown, global warming, and even the migration of diseases.
No matter how much we put our minds to the task of meeting the challenges of a rapidly globalizing world, the human race seems to continually come up short, unable to muster the collective mental resources to truly "think globally and act locally." In his most ambitious book to date, bestselling social critic Jeremy Rifkin shows that this disconnect between our vision for the world and our ability to realize that vision lies in the current state of human consciousness. The very way our brains are structured disposes us to a way of feeling, thinking, and acting in the world that is no longer entirely relevant to the new environments we have created for ourselves.
The human-made environment is rapidly morphing into a global space, yet our existing modes of consciousness are structured for earlier eras of history, which are just as quickly fading away. Humanity, Rifkin argues, finds itself on the cusp of its greatest experiment to date: refashioning human consciousness so that human beings can mutually live and flourish in the new globalizing society.
In essence, this shift in consciousness is based upon reaching out to others. But to resist this change in human relations and modes of thinking, Rifkin contends, would spell ineptness and disaster in facing the new challenges around us. As the forces of globalization accelerate, deepen, and become ever more complex, the older faith-based and rational forms of consciousness are likely to become stressed, and even dangerous, as they attempt to navigate a world increasingly beyond their reach and control. Indeed, the emergence of this empathetic consciousness has implications for the future that will likely be as profound and far-reaching as when Enlightenment philosophers upended faith-based consciousness with the canon of reason.
Una nuova visione sul futuro dell'umanità sta rapidamente guadagnando slancio. Di fronte a un'emergenza climatica planetaria, una giovane generazione sta promuovendo un dibattito sull'ipotesi di un Green New Deal e dettando il programma di un audace movimento politico capace di rivoluzionare la società. Sono i Millennial a farsi carico del problema del cambiamento climatico.
Se il Green New Deal è diventato un tema fondamentale nella sfera politica, nel mondo delle imprese sta emergendo un movimento parallelo che nei prossimi anni scuoterà le fondamenta dell'economia globale. Settori chiave dell'economia si stanno prontamente sganciando dai combustibili fossili a favore dell'energia solare ed eolica, più a buon mercato e accompagnate da nuove opportunità di business e occupazione. Nuovi studi stanno suonando l'allarme: migliaia di miliardi di dollari in combustibili fossili per i quali non esiste più un mercato potrebbero creare una bolla suscettibile di scoppiare entro il 2028, provocando il crollo della civiltà dei combustibili fossili. Il mercato sta parlando e i governi, se vogliono sopravvivere e prosperare, dovranno adattarsi.
In questo libro Jeremy Rifkin, autore bestseller del «New York Times» e famoso teorico dell'economia, espone il pensiero politico e il piano economico per il Green New Deal di cui abbiamo bisogno in questo momento critico. La convergenza fra la bolla dei combustibili fossili fuori mercato e una visione politica verde apre la possibilità di un passaggio a un'era ecologica post carbonio, in tempo per prevenire l'aumento della temperatura che ci farebbe superare il limite oltre il quale tornare indietro diverrebbe impossibile. Con venticinque anni di esperienza nel promuovere cambiamenti simili a questo nell'Unione europea e nella Repubblica popolare cinese, Rifkin presenta la sua visione su come rivoluzionare l'economia globale e salvare la vita sulla Terra.
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.
Rifkin cita como os cinco pilares deste acontecimento criarão milhares de empregos e de negócios que nos conduzirá a uma reorganização importante das relações humanas.
— da hierarquia vertical para o poder lateral — que terá grande influencia no jeito como iremos lidar com o comércio, como governaremos a sociedade e educaremos nossos filhos.
O autor mostra ainda como o Brasil pode tornar-se um protagonista na medida em que implantamos os conceitos da Terceira Revolução Industrial a partir de agora. Rifkin apresenta um prefácio específico para a edição brasileira mostrando os caminhos a serem trilhados.
Este livro com prefácio de MARINA SILVA, trás um extraordinário paradigma econômico para guiar a jornada humana no século XXI, além de ser um relato de um insider sobre a próxima grande era econômica, onde empreendedores sociais e CEOs globais estão liderando suas implementações no mundo todo.
