What Is the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Up until around 1760, most ordinary people toiled the land or slaved away in poorhouses and sweatshops to make a living. Power was concentrated in the hands of the aristocracy who owned land and natural resources.

But then the first industrial revolution came along and turned that world on its head.

Machines didn’t “replace” human labour – it multiplied what human labour could accomplish. And over the next few decades, the aristocrats lost most of their economic power. Why? Because the people who reaped the rewards of this revolution were the rising class of capitalists, who invested in these machines early and were able to beat out the “old money” aristocrats who put all their eggs in the old way of doing things.

(Remember Baron Rothschild’s famous “blood in the streets” quote? Well, he was talking about this first industrial revolution. It’s what made his family one of the richest in the world for the next two centuries.)

The second industrial revolution took place just before the first World War.

All of these technologies were famously dismissed by respected thought leaders of their day. Yet, in barely more than a decade, visionaries who got behind these new technologies early put the “old money” capitalists out of business.

The third industrial revolution started in the 1980s.

Digital information and communication technologies allowed us to store, process, and transmit information at a speed, and on a scale, that just a few decades before would have seemed unimaginable.

Microsoft. Amazon. Apple. Facebook. Alphabet. Samsung.

These are some of the biggest companies in the world – and lying in their wake is a trailing wreckage of outdated business models that didn’t stand a chance against the power of disruptive technology.

So – what about the fourth industrial revolution?

Economists have been talking about the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” for a few years now. But it doesn’t yet have a precise definition – for the simple reason that it is still in its infancy.

Here’s what we do know, though:

Bottom line:

Economic disruption on the scale we’re about to see only comes about once every few generations. When it does happen, there’s always a “change of guard” – where old fortunes are lost and new fortunes are made.

Are you ready for this fourth industrial revolution?

How can prescient technology investors get behind this new generation of technology early, without exposing themselves to undue risk? And when is the right time for us to put our chips down?

These are big questions.

And I don’t have all the answers right now.

In fact, I don’t think any one person can answer these questions.

That’s why I created the Future Tech Podcast.

Over the last few years, it has given me the opportunity to approach, interview, and build a solid black book of future tech developers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and other players who are driving this revolution.

And – privately, i.e. behind closed doors – they’ve lifted the lid on many dozens of exciting projects and shown me how they’re applying this new technology in all kinds of powerful and exciting ways. As a result of what I’ve learned, I’ve built up some investment positions that are poised to make handsome returns.

Now, I can’t reveal any of the confidential information that I’m privy to.

However, what I can do is share some of my analysis, insight, and investment ideas with you. And I can share some non-confidential items of intelligence when they land on my desk each morning. And I can tell you about some of the inside players who have given me permission to “go public” about their work.

And you can use some of this insight to make your own investment decisions.
