The Age of Access: The New Culture of Hypercapitalism, where All of Life is a Paid-for Experience

J.P. Tarcher/Putnam, 2000 - 312 Seiten
Here is a journey into the new world of hyper-capitalism where accessing experiences becomes more important than owning things and all of life is a paid-for activity.Rifkin shows how new technologies are even eliminating concepts of 'property' and 'ownership' from our lives. In this new era, we will buy enlightenment and play, grooming and grace, and everything in between in the form of purchased experiences. He warns of a dawning era in which giant access-providing companies are profiting from every aspect of human existence, while consumers own nothing. In this new economy, access-sellers will finally be able to commidify all of human experience.
