Jeremy Rifkin on the Real Economic Crisis
The real reason for the economic crisis is the diminishing supply of oil and other fossil fuels. That’s the conclusion of Jeremy Rifkin, President of the Foundation on Economic Trends and advisor to the European Union for the past decade, who goes on to explain why he believes industrial civilisation is at a dangerous crossroads.
This is the first of Jeremy’s two exclusive interviews with Criticaleye. In the second, Leadership and the New Energy Revolution, Jeremy explores the business opportunity of a third industrial revolution based on the use of Internet Communication Technology to manage distributed renewable energies.
