World Economic Forum on the 4th Industrial Revolution

I discussed this quite a bit in the IPS thread here on Rifkin's latest book. Not only will there be an increasing interface between humans and machines but a new economic system is arising after Keynesianism and neoliberalism, the neo-Commons. The video goes into many aspects of life affected by this shift, including education, work, healthcare, communication, energy etc. And at the heart of this new system is a shift to an ecological consciousness.

Even though the new President and Administration in the US will set back this transition for some time here, it will continue to grow in other places like the Scandinavian countries, Germany and even China. And eventually the US will wake up enough to elect leaders that will progress us toward this inevitable new and better world.
