IR #4: The Conscious Revolution

I think Martin Wolf's on to something with his assessment, but I think he needs to take it a little bit further down the path.  Previous industrial revolutions have built the Western World we now live in.  As with all foundations, though, when the house-keeping isn't kept, cracks start to form and new growth starts to take over.
Innovation isn't dead, because it isn't as tied to our current capitalist model of economics as we think.  In fact, our understanding of how innovation really works is just now starting to bleed into our collective consciousness.
We are likely first-hand witnesses to the end of an era.  That also means we get to be actors in the ushering in of a new one.  Oh, the thinks we can think, eh?  Welcome to the Conscious Revolution.
