About this title

Synopsis:

Jeremy Rifkin argues that we are entering a new phase in history - one characterized by the steady and inevitable decline of jobs. The world, says Rifkin, is fast polarizing into two potentially irreconcilable forces: on one side, an information elite that controls and manages the high-tech global economy; and on the other, the growing numbers displaced workers, who have few prospects and little hope for meaningful employment in an increasingly automated world. The end of work could mean the demise of civilization as we have come to know it, or signal the beginning of a great social transformation and a rebirth of the human spirit.

About the Author:

Jeremy Rifkin is the bestselling author of The Biotech Century, The Age of Access, and The Hydrogen Economy. A fellow at the Wharton School's Executive Education Program, he is the president of The Foundation on Economic Trends in Washington, D.C.
