In a digitally-driven society, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin describes the birth of a new economic system that can address climate change and create a more equitable and empathic world. A Third Industrial Revolution is unfolding with the convergence of three pivotal technologies: an ultra-fast 5G communication internet, a renewable energy internet, and a driverless mobility internet, all connected to the Internet of Things. This 21st century smart digital infrastructure is giving rise to a radical new sharing economy that is transforming the way we manage, power and move economic life.
