Pressestimmen

'With the European Union already on board, this is a big idea with backbone.' - Nature 'As so much is going on around the world, it is time for a thinker like Rifkin to rise again. Rifkin is a master at that game, connecting the essential drivers of change. He has always been a creative thinker: on this occasion he doesn't reinvent the wheel or renewable energies or the Internet. His ability is to look through all the changes and innovations and see how they will interact and possibly change the world we live in.' - The Global Journal 'Impeccably argued!a compelling and cogent argument to overhaul our society and economy in favor of a distributed and collaborative model.' - Publishers Weekly 'Rifkin connects the two defining technologies of the 21st Century -- the Internet and renewable energies -- giving us a powerful new economic vision for the future. As we look to regrow the economy, generate millions of jobs, and create a sustainable future for our children, the Third Industrial Revolution offers an indispensable roadmap.' - Arianna Huffington - President and Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post Media Group 'Mr. Rifkin clearly outlines the challenges facing our global community, and creates a vision for business leaders, government and citizens.' - John Chambers - Chairman and CEO of Cisco 'The creative thinking of Jeremy Rifkin has been inspiring policy makers and citizens alike. This book shows the key role renewables and modern technologies can play in our transition to a low-carbon economy.' - Jose Manuel Barroso - President of the European Commission 'This is a remarkable piece of work from one of the foremost thinkers of our time!Rifkin has come up with a visionary and innovative economic development model that ensures the sustainability of our natural resources and ecosystems.' - Rajendra Pachauri - Chairman of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 'A brilliant new economic paradigm to guide the human journey in the 21st century. Jeremy Rifkin's comprehensive Third Industrial Revolution vision, which is the centerpiece of Rome's long-term economic development plan, provides a blueprint for every city in the world to create a sustainable and prosperous society.' - Gianni Alemanno - Mayor of Rome 'More than thought provoking! a call for action to policy makers and business leaders to embrace the opportunity of a society and economy driven by sustainable innovation and powered by renewable and distributed energy.' - Rudy Provoost - CEO of Philips Lighting -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

A brilliant book. Get it! Rifkin excellently sets out the case for climate change and a method of how a national renewable energy strategy can be implemented through a distributed solution and smart networks. This concept is already being implemented in Germany and elsewhere.

Very much liked the book. It shows a possible future for a relatively energy clean use that is affordable and economically feasible. Makes me want to do some things to support that vision which is fortunately much more on the way already than I hoped.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Lieferung und Artikel Zustand waren einwandfrei. Das Buch ist zwar nicht gerade das Neueste auf dem Markt aber dennoch eines der inhaltsreichsten. Es enthält viele Fakten, die einfach und verständlich aufgewiesen werden. Ein Muss für Jedermann, der sich auch nur im entferntesten für Gesellschaft, Kapitalismus und Globalisierung interessiert.

A Thought-Provoking Look at the Future 28. September 2011
Von Jeff D. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"The Third Industrial Revolution" offers a fascinating look at Jeremy Rifkin's views on the future of energy and the economy. Rifkin believes we are on the verge of a new industrial revolution that will transform the economy and society in a similar way to the major changes that occurred in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Rifkin's "third" industrial revolution is based on "five pillars:" (1) A general shift to renewable energy. (2) Micro-generation of clean energy in homes, offices and other buildings. (3) Hydrogen and other forms of energy storage in homes and throughout the economy (4) an "Internet-like" smart energy grid that would allow individuals to generate power and then distribute it, and (5) Conversion of transportation away from fossil fuels to electric plug-in or hydrogen fuel cells.

While the book contains a lot of insightful analysis, I think it gives short shrift to the problem of jobs. Technology and globalization are increasingly destroying well-paid opportunities for workers in developed countries. The book does discuss this, but only in the very last few pages. This is surprising because, of course, Rifkin wrote a book about this issue in the 1990s ("The End of Work"). Now, however, he seems to buy into the more conventional view that green jobs will solve the problem of unemployment.

I'm doubtful of that. Technologies like artificial intelligence and robotics are accelerating and will soon have a dramatic impact. Advancing technology will also make offshoring of high wage jobs a bigger and bigger problem in the West.

"The Third Industrial Revolution" offers many good ideas, but I think it ultimately falls short of answering the question on many peoples' minds: How will average people in developed countries like the United States make an adequate living (and keep pace with the cost of living) while competing with both technology and globalization? That is a critical question because if households are focused on individual survival, it will be very difficult to amass political support for the energy and climate change policies Rifkin advocates. For a strong analysis of the jobs/income issue and some solutions, also read "The Lights in the Tunnel."

Re Re Repeats itself to make it long enough 13. November 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is good, but it's definitely verbose, as it repeats the same concepts over and over again. There is no doubt that the author is well versed in the subject matter, both in breadth and depth, but there is only so much one can espouse about the transformation of modern society from a fossil-fuel based economy to a renewable-energy based economy. Yes, Europe is way ahead of the United States in achieving the 5 factors that will successfully transform society into the Third Industrial Revolution - we get it. Oh, you want to make the point again? O.K. - got it. Again? Really? There is no need to study that concept ad-nauseum from every conceivable angle. For the layperson, this book is a little much. I think I put it down permanently about midway through... Wait a month and buy it used in order to save yourself some $$'s and thus form your own mini economic revolution.

Great Vision 24. Oktober 2011
Von Jason W. Stone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I heard an interview with him and was really inspired. So, I got this book. Well, the interview was Great. The book isn't. His vision and ideas are really compelling. I hope I see it all come to pass. However, I couldn't finish the book. It is mostly a chronicle of all the discussions that have happened with many governments. That's all a bit dull. It will make for good history when the TIR happens.

important content but so badly written 17. April 2012
Von Pythagoras - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The concepts that Rifkin puts forward are incredibly important to the future of our economy, but more importantly to combating climate change. I so want to like this book, because more people need to become familiar with these concepts. But the writing! Mr. Rifkin, it is very nice that you have had dinner with Angela Merkel, and met with many heads of state, but this does almost nothing for your narrative. It reads more like an ego trip than a description of the very important process of communicating ideas, and the development of long range plans for the implementation of those ideas. The book could be a great resource as well, but is incredibly under-footnoted, so it has very little value for further research. A real disappointment.

The TIR & Intergrid 14. November 2011
Von Bay Elliott - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
In addition to reading this book, if you ever have a chance to see Jeremy Rifkin present on the Third Industrial Revolution and the Intergrid, please, take that advantage (it is well worth it!). Mr. Rifkin has wonderfully distilled and delivered a compelling vision of the world ahead in a sustainable, clean, distributed and collaborative energy model. This book brings a perspective on past industrial revolutions and points to technological processes and connects many of the dots of the myriad & disparate energy technologies and how they will coalesce and be deployed in the years ahead. It is no surprise that Mr. Rifkin has been advising many global governments not only on what the vision is but how to take advantage of the economic opportunity since 2007. It remains disappointing that the political climate in the US continues to inhibit a unified energy policy... and thus puts the US at a severe competitive industrial disadvantage vis a vis countries like Germany, China, Singapore and many others that have been listening... and which understand the rich landscape of commercial opportunities ahead... and the significant detriment to those countries which aren't proactively adjusting to those threats (& opportunities) ahead. There are several books which work well as companion pieces to Rifkin's TIR: "That Used To Be Us", "Reigniting Fire" and "The Quest" are some of them. Based on documented job creation in Germany from the solar sector alone, US economists recently projected that, had the US followed a similar solar/ renewable energy vision, we would likely see over 2million related jobs created. Energy Efficiency carries its own highly compelling ROI. We have clean fuels in our labs now that have an unsubsidized cost per BTU less than that of Natural Gas, and without the carbon emissions. Coupled with the smart grid, these new technologies will allow the highly efficient energy storage that unlocks Rifkin's Intergrid: the sustainable, distributed, adaptive, interactive, renewable energy Intergrid. Rifkin's TIR & Intergrid outlines a compelling vision for the future, but one that is already dawning in labs across the world and beginning to be implemented where there are true leaders. The book drives home its points repeatedly... but the points are well worth paying attention to.
