HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF
Industrial Revolution vs. Globalization and the Ongoing Digital Transformation of Today.
The current problems endured by the United States, which may seem incomprehensible today, Europe withstood them more than 100 years ago. The technical progress that the industrial revolution brought –invented and financed by Europeans– had as a consequence, a serious social crisis that could well have been the cause of the European upheavals of the 20th century. A progress that encouraged the United States to turn it into what they call the “Exceptional Nation”, took Europe to a second-tier role in current international affairs. It is not surprising then, that the Digital Transformation of our days, created and encouraged by the United States, may end up dethroning this country giving way to Asian leadership.
