If you’re a construction company or an IT company or a logistics company or an information data operation, to the extent that you can find ways to help build the commons, you can get some commercial value in that  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) Back in the mid-1980s, congressional hearings were held after we brought this litigation, and held up the first experiment. At that time, I went in front of Congress, along with the major agencies involved with this  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) What the public needs to understand is that these new technologies, especially in recombinant DNA technology, allow scientists to bypass biological boundaries altogether.  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) Basic income is not a utopia, it’s a practical business plan for the next step of the human journey.  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) The antitrust litigation currently in the federal courts in the U.S. against Monsanto will be the test case in the life sciences, just as the Microsoft case was the test case in the information sciences.  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) In this country, the health concerns and the environmental concerns are as deep as in Europe.

The judge ruled in our favor.  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) We are entering a new phase in human history - one in which fewer and fewer workers will be needed to produce the goods and services for the global population.  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) The world’s environment can no longer handle beef  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) Can we reach biosphere consciousness and global empathy in time to avert planetary collapse?  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) We are learning that the earth functions like an invisible organism.

We may be on the cusp of a future which could provide a tremendous leap forward for humanity  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) We now have an opportunity, though, to do something we didn’t do in the industrial age, and that is to get a leg up on this, to bring the public in quickly, to have an informed debate  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) The interesting thing is, while we die of diseases of affluence from eating all these fatty meats, our poor brethren in the developing world die of diseases of poverty, because the land is not used now to grow food grain for their families  (Jeremy Rifkin Quotes) The public should know that the liability issues here have yet to be resolved, or even raised.
