Jeremy Rifkin, president of the Foundation on Economic Trends and the bestselling author of nineteen books on the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society, and the environment, is the 2013 College of Science and Mathematics speaker for the Todd Lecture Series.
Rifkin recently published his 19th book, The Third Industrial Revolution: How Lateral Power is Transforming Energy, The Economy, and The World. His global economic development team is the largest of its kind in the world and is working with cities, regions, and national governments to develop master plans to transition their economies into post-carbon Third Industrial Revolution infrastructures.
Rifkin will speak on the potential impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society, and the environment. His talk happens on Monday, February 25th at 7:00 p.m. in Plumley Armory. The public is welcome. No tickets are necessary, but large group reservations are requested, and may be made by calling Penny Ritzer at 485-2310, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
A book signing reception will immediately follow the talk. Copies of The Third Industrial Revolution will be available for sale at that time.
