Who Will Pay for the Zero Marginal Cost Society?

In a zero marginal cost society, the collaborative commons will bypass the conventional marketplace, and society will shift from an exchange-oriented economy to a shared one.

Ironically, capitalism’s demise is not coming at the hands of hostile external forces. Rather, “The Zero Marginal Cost Society” argues, capitalism is a victim of its own success. Intense competition across sectors of the economy is forcing the introduction of ever newer technologies.

Jeremy Rifkin is the author of “The Zero Marginal Cost Society

“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.” —

Maybe economists like Jeremy Rifkin will stop writing books like “The Zero Marginal Cost Society: The Internet of Things, the Collaborative Commons, and the Eclipse of Capitalism” when they are replaced by robots who can do the same work as human economists at far less cost.
