Editorial Reviews


"Nicholas Johnson and Brendan Markey-Towler have written a must-read guide to understanding the fourth industrial revolution, its socioeconomic impact, and ways to seize opportunities and overcome possible challenges. I’m definitely recommending this to anyone who wants to stay ahead as we continue to integrate technology in different industries and business processes." Tasmin Trezise, President of Workforce.com

"Economics of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is an essential explainer on the future of socio-economic development. Without oversimplifying, it comprehensively dissects the vast terrains of General Purpose Technologies and Mega Technologies through the lens of Brisbane Club Model and its network effect. Nicholas and Brendan highlight the critical structural transformation that is presently underway, and provide the theoretical framework required to understand this change and its future implications. As we navigate the complex cascading effects of globalisation, Economics of the Fourth Industrial Revolution explores crucial insights on how individuals, groups, and communities can effectively leverage these technological advancements. The book uniquely captures the cultural, behavioural, and society metamorphosis propelled by the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Backed with insightful case studies and a coherent conceptual understanding, Nicholas and Brendan’s writing flows between meta-themes of evolutionary economic and social organisation to practical advice to leverage the potential of emerging technologies. For developing countries like India, and entrepreneurial individuals and communities, Economics of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a must read. It will help you realise your untapped economic capabilities and orient them to leverage the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In times of disconcerting uncertainty and upheaval, Nicholas and Brendan write with astounding clarity." Utkarsh Amitabh, Founder of Network Capital
