ROBERT STEELE: Rifkin is brilliant at the fad level and we are lucky to have him as a voice that the public can hear. Where he falls flat is in relation to holistic analytics, true cost of production, and open source everything engineering. Anyone who can say that business has succeeded wildly in lowering the costs of production is clearly out of touch with the true cost of production.
