Each revolution consists of several technology systems that develop at different rhythms and in a sequence depending on feedback loops. The information revolution began with chips and hardware, leading to software and telecom, leading to the Internet, leading to mobile.
Each of these can appear as separate revolutions rather than interdependent systems under a wider umbrella — each smaller system benefits from the previous one, while also reinforcing it.
Frequently bought together
Revolutions often involve significant changes in direction, uninstalling what was previously installed, unlearning much of the old to learn the new, closing dead end paths as others are jumping onto new bandwagons. Thus often the radical innovations come from outsiders who have not been imbued with the previous paradigm.
The nature of the paradigm can favor certain comparative advantages. The fourth revolution of mass production favored large homogeneous populations, thus favoring the USA and the Soviet Union. Society shapes technological revolutions by cycling between inertia and desire for growth. Each revolution is initially received as a threat to the established way of doing things in firms, institutions, and society — which have all optimized for the previous revolution.
The new economy implies job losses, geographic displacement, and unaddressed regulatory challenges. Political pressures begin calling for action to propel the required institutional changes to accommodate the new revolution.
As the revolution becomes the new prevailing paradigm, it favors compatible innovations and it excludes incompatible innovations.
An innovation that fits in the natural trajectory of the prevailing paradigm is readily accepted by society, allowing progress. In contrast, incompatible innovations may be rejected by investors or consumers, and are instead adapted in a minor way to the current paradigm, even though they may very well be the focal point of the next technological revolution.
As the revolution matures, technological innovation shows decreasing returns and markets become saturated. Growth and profits are threatened. Social unrest reoccurs when the growth that was promised does not materialize. This is the point of greatest reception to radical innovations, and firms experiment with new technologies to revitalize themselves.
Promising innovations attract idle capital, and the big-bang event kicks off a flywheel effect of capital and labor that leads to the next revolution cycle. Thus, Carlota Perez maintains that society shapes innovation to occur in these predictable revolutionary cycles, providing both a propelling and dampening force at different phases.
When there is inertia in one sphere of change, unrest in another exercises enough pressure to induce changes.
When there is inertia in technology, unrest in the financial sphere from declining profits and social sphere from wealth inequality prompts looking for radical technology innovations. Likewise, unrest in technology forces past the inertia in the social sphere.
Another reason, explained later, is that the next technological revolution picks up in the maturity phase of the previous one — so different technologies may take different amounts of time to exhaust markets and begin looking for radical innovations.
In Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital , Carlota Perez outlines five revolutions that each upended the economy. In the past, distribution used to cost a lot of money — newspapers had to be printed, retail stores needed rent. Thus producers benefited from large economies of scale, encouraging homogenization of consumption. The internet made distribution nearly free, reduced startup costs, and enabled discoverabilty. Thus niches could thrive without needing mass economies of scale.
In turn this develops into a general social acceptance of diversity and individuality.
And thus technology shapes society. Financial capital represents the agents who possess wealth in the form of money or relatively liquid assets.

Their objective is to make money from money, and they perform actions that are most likely to increase their wealth. Financial capital reallocates and redistributes wealth. Production capital represents the agents who generate new wealth by producing goods or services.
These agents do this with borrowed money from financial capital and share the generated wealth. Their desire is to accumulate greater profit-making capacity by innovating, growing, and expanding. It helps to start from the end of the previous revolution, which offers the gestational environment for new innovation.
The big-bang event offers a visible attractor for investment, sparking the imagination of engineers and entrepreneurs. This technological breakthrough offers new cost-competitive possibilities in a sluggish landscape [and are classically disruptive in the Christiansen sense].
The irrationally exuberant bubble bursts, causing a recession and social unrest. This is the trigger for regulatory and institutional change to adapt to the new revolution.
Using the infrastructure developed in Frenzy and the regulatory safeguards in Turning Point, the technological revolution diffuses across the whole economy. Business is satisfied about its positive social role.
Technology, and even finance, is seen as a positive force. Finally, the technological revolution begins to deplete its possibilities. Refer to Phase 0 above. In Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital , Carlota Perez classifies financial innovations along six types, then illustrates when innovations in each type occur.
Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital
Joint stocks for large investments B Help growth or expansion Production expansion domestically and abroad bonds. Government funding eg war, infrastructure investment C Modernize financial services themselves New service to clients telegraph transfers, personal checking accounts, e-banking. Capital is invested more in financial innovations than in technological innovations.
Asset bubbles are inflated. Synergy phase: Growing inequality and political unrest. A need for political regulation of the financial sector is acknowledged. Asset bubbles may burst. The link between financial capital and production capital is repaired.
Maturity phase: The market for the new technology begins to become saturated. Social structure and infrastructure have adapted to the new technologies.

Opportunities for investment are decreasing. The idle financial capital is moving to new sectors and new regions where it may lay the foundation of the next great surge.
A Foreign Affairs review said "A broad-sweep 'think piece' in the Schumpeterian spirit, this book discusses the relationship between major technological innovations and financial booms and busts.

The model described by Carlota Perez shows repeated surges of technological development over the past three centuries with examples such as: Opportunities for investment are decreasing. In contrast, incompatible innovations may be rejected by investors or consumers, and are instead adapted in a minor way to the current paradigm, even though they may very well be the focal point of the next technological revolution.
This is the point of greatest reception to radical innovations, and firms experiment with new technologies to revitalize themselves. One aspects is a growing energy crisis, i. The online content platform for Edward Elgar Publishing. The most evident crisis is the crisis of one form of the capitalist system, which I would like to correlate with the Kondratieff cycles. Then we may see emerge, after the period of chaos described above, some Kondratieff wave in a renewed form of capitalism, which would have green and p2p elements as part of the new mix.
This means the dating of deployment is not the same for all countries and can be delayed by decades, and the full revolution globally may take a full century.
