The Zero Marginal Cost Society: The Internet of Things, the Collaborative Commons, and the Eclipse of Capitalism The Zero Marginal Cost Society: The Internet of Things, the Collaborative Commons, and the Eclipse of Capitalism

by Jeremy Rifkin

Book Reviews

"Jeremy Rifkin offers an ambitious and optimistic image of how a Collaborative Commons could displace industrial capitalism when the peer-to-peer economic and social practices of the Internet are extended to energy, logistics, and material fabrication. Even skeptical readers, concerned with the ubiquitous surveillance and exquisite social control that these same technologies enable, should find the vision exhilarating and its exposition thought provoking."
-- Yochai Benkler, Harvard Law School

"This breathtaking book connects some of today's most compelling technology-driven trends into a five-hundred-year spiral from commons to capitalism and back. Rifkin has produced an intellectual joyride that takes us to the threshold of a new economic order."
-- Kevin Werbach, the Wharton School

"The Zero Marginal Cost Society confirms Jeremy Rifkin as the peerless visionary of technological trends. The future arrives only to fill in the sketches that Rifkin so ably draws. I highly recommend this book as a cure for those who are perplexed about the future of technology."
-- Calestous Juma, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

"In his latest work, Jeremy Rifkin turns his gaze on the world in which almost everything has a marginal cost approaching zero. His radical conclusions -- foretelling the eclipse of our current economic system and the rise of the "collaboratists" -- will make this one of the most discussed books of the year." 
-- James Boyle, the Center for the Study of the Public Domain, Duke Law School

"Jeremy Rifkin makes the undeniable case for our growing, global collaborative destiny. I dare you to read this book and not rethink your future!
-- Lisa Gansky, author of The Mesh: Why the Future of Business is Sharing

"A comprehensive exploration of the implications of anyone being able to make anything"
-- Neil Gershenfeld, Director, MIT Center for Bits and Atoms
