Description: The global economy is undergoing a fundamental transformation in the nature of work that will reshape civilization in the 21st Century, says economist Jeremy Rifkin. In this compelling and disturbing, yet ultimately hopeful book, Rifkin argues that we are entering a new phase in history – one characterized by the steady and inevitable decline of jobs. Sophisticated computers, robotics, telecommunications, and other Information Age technologies are fast replacing human beings in virtually every sector and industry. Near-workerless factories and virtual companies loom on the horizon.
