Carlota Perez  Cambridge and Sussex Universities, U.K. and Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia 9 TH  Triple Helix Conference Session in memory of Chris Freeman Stanford, July 2011 THE DIRECTION OF INNOVATION  AFTER THE FINANCIAL COLLAPSE   ICT for green growth  and global development
HISTORY Perhaps the most important lesson that Chris Freeman taught us is that: That wider framework helps us identify long-term regularities THAT ECONOMICS IS INCAPABLE OF UNDERSTANDING GROWTH  WITHOUT INTERDISCIPLINARITY  AND ALLOWS US TO GLEAN THE FUTURE Economics Technology Institutions
EACH ONE DRIVES A GREAT SURGE OF DEVELOPMENT FIVE TECHNOLOGICAL REVOLUTIONS IN 240 YEARS AND CHANGES THE TECHNO-ECONOMIC PARADIGM GUIDING INNOVATION The ‘Industrial Revolution’ (machines, factories and canals)  1771 Age of Steam, Coal, Iron and Railways  1829 Age of Steel and Heavy Engineering (electrical, chemical, civil, naval) 1875 Age of the Automobile, Oil, Petrochemicals and Mass Production 1908 Age of Information Technology and Telecommunications 1971 Age of Biotech, Nanotech, Bioelectronics and New Materials??? 20??
The second half is the  DEPLOYMENT PERIOD led by production and the State when innovation  spreads across the board to reap the full  economic and social benefits Due to the massive “creative destruction” required   DIFFUSION TAKES PLACE IN TWO DISTINCT PERIODS  The first half is the  INSTALLATION PERIOD led by finance and free markets when innovation concentrates  to set up the new infrastructure, let markets pick the new winners and modernize the old economy THE MAJOR BUBBLE COLLAPSE  MARKS THE SWING OF THE PENDULUM
The shift from financial mania and collapse to Golden Ages occurs  when enabled by regulation and policies to shape and widen markets  THE HISTORICAL RECORD Bubble prosperities, recessions and golden ages INSTALLATION PERIOD DEPLOYMENT PERIOD TURNING POINT Infrastructure bubbles  of first globalisation (Argentina, Australia, USA) Belle Époque (Europe) “Progressive Era” (USA) 1890–95  Railway mania The Victorian  Boom 1848–5 0  Canal mania The Great British leap 1793–97 Internet mania and financial casino Global Sustainable  ”Golden Age”? 2000 & 2007/8 -???? The roaring twenties Post-war Golden age Europe 1929–33 USA  1929–43 Bubble prosperity Maturity “ Golden Age” prosperity Collapse & Recessions 1771 Britain 1829 Britain 1875  Britain / USA Germany 1908  USA 1971  USA 1 st 2 nd 3 rd 4 th 5 th GREAT SURGE Year country
Each style became “the good life” redefining people’s desires  and guiding innovation trajectories EACH GOLDEN AGE HAS BROUGHT A CHANGE IN LIFESTYLES with new life-shaping goods and services  that open vast new market directions Age of Steam, Coal,  Iron and Railways 1850s-1860s Urban, industry-based  VICTORIAN LIVING in Britain DEPLOYMENT PERIOD LIFESTYLE Age of Steel and Heavy Engineering 1890s-1910s Urban, cosmopolitan lifestyle of THE BELLE EPOQUE in Europe Age of the Automobile, oil and Mass Production  1950s-1960s Suburban, energy-intensive AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE 2010s-20??s Will the developed and emerging countries develop a variety  of ICT-intensive “GREEN” SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLES? Age of global ICT
WHY TWO PERIODS? WHY THE BUBBLE? Once the bubbles collapse, the job is done THE NEW PARADIGM IS INSTALLED AND CAN BE DEPLOYED But that requires a structural shift away from the casino economy RESISTANCE TO THE NEW Old industries old habits old methods Need a period of CREATIVE DESTRUCTION to force modernization UNCERTAINTY Which products? Which technologies? Which companies? Which markets? Need to experiment in ferocious “free market” COMPETITION NATURE OF INFRASTRUCTURES All or nothing Invest up-front Revenues come later Need credit creation through bubble boom and  short-term CAPITAL GAINS
The length of the process depends on the social and political forces The last time around it took over a decade and a major war THREE TASKS FOR GOVERNMENTS   AT THE TURNING POINT, AFTER THE MAJOR CRASH: DONE… even overdone This time global finance needs both national redesign and  a  global  regulatory “floor” STILL ON THE DRAWING BOARD RARELY BEING CONSIDERED  AS SUCH But recovery will be very difficult without it Intensive therapy  for finance 1 Redesign of regulation  and financial architecture 2 Enable a  STRUCTURAL SHIFT  in the real economy   3
THE NEW TECHNOLOGICAL POTENTIAL  changes the relative cost structure and marks the direction of change It is a huge opportunity space for innovation, growth and radical changes in lifestyles The techno-economic paradigm shift happening since the 1970s-80s FROM THE LOGIC  OF CHEAP ENERGY (oil) for transport, electricity,  synthetic materials, etc. TO THE LOGIC  OF CHEAP INFORMATION   its processing, transmission and productive use Preference for services and intangible value Huge potential for savings in energy and materials Preference  for tangible products and disposability Unthinking use  of energy and materials Unavoidable  environmental destruction Capacity for  environmental friendliness
YET, THE NEW PARADIGM IS STILL WRAPPED IN THE OLD WHY? Because in the crucial 1990s we had   cheap oil and cheap Asian labour  which favoured the stretching of the old marketing and consumption patterns Mass production disposability and high use of energy and materials are still with us TO CONTINUE ON THIS ROUTE WE WOULD NEED SEVEN PLANETS! An automobile in 1898 The first automobiles   looked like horse driven carriages Reproduction: L.De Vries. 1972
CHANGE IN THE ECONOMICS OF THE PRODUCTION, TRANSPORT AND DISTRIBUTION OF TANGIBLE GOODS Optimal relocation and geographic re-specialization of physical production  Gradual redesign of the consumption patterns for the “good life” CHANGE IN BUSINESS STRATEGIES CHANGE IN GOVERNMENT POLICIES THE UNAVOIDABLE  PATH OF THE CURRENT GLOBALIZATION PATTERN Rising prices of oil and raw materials Rising packaging and freight costs Visible effects of increasing global warming Rising climatic risks and insurance costs
HOW WAS THE MASS PRODUCTION GOLDEN AGE UNLEASHED ? ? Through very strict financial regulation in each country  Glass Steagall, “Chinese walls”, deposit insurance, capital export controls, etc. International stability through the Bretton Woods agreements US dollar as “gold”, IMF, GATT, World Bank (then IBRD), etc. Keynesian policies for stable growth within national borders Counter-cyclical measures, stimulus spending, etc. and a set of policies… … INDUCING STRUCTURAL CHANGE IN FAVOR OF MASS CONSUMPTION!
THE SYNERGISTIC CONDITIONS THAT SHAPED THE POST WAR GOLDEN AGE They were provided in different proportions in each “First World” country Cheap oil and materials Universal electricity Road and airway networks INNOVATION ENABLERS FOR MASS PRODUCTION FACILITATORS OF DEMAND GROWTH FOR MASS CONSUMPTION Welfare State Public procurement Labour unions Personal credit system FORCES SHAPING    THE DIRECTION  OF INNOVATION Suburbanization Post-war reconstruction R&D funding Cold war
A POSITIVE-SUM GAME AND BROUGHT  THE GREATEST BOOM  IN HISTORY THAT TURNED THE WORKERS INTO MIDDLE INCOME CONSUMERS
The new global  positive-sum  game Full internet access at low cost is equivalent to electrification  and suburbanization  in facilitating demand (and, this time,  also education)  Revamping  transport, energy, products,  production and consumption patterns  to make them sustainable  is equivalent to post-war reconstruction and the spread of suburbia Incorporating successive new millions into sustainable consumption patterns is equivalent to the Welfare State and government procurement in terms of demand creation Universal ICT “ GREEN” GROWTH FULL  GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
And the elements are interconnected But we need policy consensus  involving government, business and society Internet access is    the social    and geographic  frontier    of the global market ICTs are the main   enabling instruments   of sustainability Only with sustainable production and consumption patterns Is globalization possible  ICT “ GREEN” FULL  GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
“ GREEN” is not only about  saving the planet It is about saving the economy and having a high (but different) quality of life GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT  is not only a humanitarian goal It is about healthy growth, markets and employment  in the advanced, emerging and developing worlds
Would provide  a vast new opportunity space  for innovation and wealth creation Would fulfill the needs of people  in emerging and developing countries  without sacrificing  those of the advanced ones Would avoid climatic catastrophes  and extreme prices in energy and materials A MASSIVE “GREEN” SHIFT  IN PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION PATTERNS GLOBALLY BUT IT CANNOT HAPPEN BY IMPOSITION  OR MOVED  BY GUILT OR FEAR BUT BY DESIRE AND ASPIRATION “ GREEN” MUST BECOME THE “LUXURY LIFE”
WHAT LOOKS IMPOSSIBLE NOW MAY SEEM OBVIOUS LATER In mid-1930s DEPRESSION  it seemed impossible to imagine… … that blue collar workers  would have lifetime jobs and fully equipped suburban houses  with a car at the door Shifts in consumption patterns shift profit-making opportunities … or that most colonies  would gain independence … the new middle classes  rising in the developing world widened world markets for mass production by adopting the “American Way of Life”  …  and innovations in distribution logistics have made organic foods  the premium segment in supermarkets But later it was obvious that… … increasing wages created many more millions of consumers for mass production and sustained growth And it seemed impossible in the late 1960s… … to expect some of the values  of the hippie movement [back to natural materials, organic food, etc.]  to become the luxury norms … innovations in natural textile fibers have transformed the world of high fashion But it is now obvious that…
THE TECHNOLOGICAL STAGE IS SET TODAY FOR THE GLOBAL GOLDEN AGE OF THE 21 st  CENTURY It is up to business, government and society to agree on the convergent actions for making it a reality
Another important lesson that Chris Freeman taught us is that: Beyond the interdisciplinary understanding of the economy ACADEMIC WORK MUST ENGAGE IN THE BETTERMENT OF SOCIETY Will we reach the golden age or waste the opportunity? WE SHALL ALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OUTCOME

Carlota Perez at Triple Helix Conference Stanford 2011

  • 1. Carlota Perez Cambridge and Sussex Universities, U.K. and Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia 9 TH Triple Helix Conference Session in memory of Chris Freeman Stanford, July 2011 THE DIRECTION OF INNOVATION AFTER THE FINANCIAL COLLAPSE ICT for green growth and global development
  • 2. HISTORY Perhaps the most important lesson that Chris Freeman taught us is that: That wider framework helps us identify long-term regularities THAT ECONOMICS IS INCAPABLE OF UNDERSTANDING GROWTH WITHOUT INTERDISCIPLINARITY AND ALLOWS US TO GLEAN THE FUTURE Economics Technology Institutions
  • 3. EACH ONE DRIVES A GREAT SURGE OF DEVELOPMENT FIVE TECHNOLOGICAL REVOLUTIONS IN 240 YEARS AND CHANGES THE TECHNO-ECONOMIC PARADIGM GUIDING INNOVATION The ‘Industrial Revolution’ (machines, factories and canals) 1771 Age of Steam, Coal, Iron and Railways 1829 Age of Steel and Heavy Engineering (electrical, chemical, civil, naval) 1875 Age of the Automobile, Oil, Petrochemicals and Mass Production 1908 Age of Information Technology and Telecommunications 1971 Age of Biotech, Nanotech, Bioelectronics and New Materials??? 20??
  • 4. The second half is the DEPLOYMENT PERIOD led by production and the State when innovation spreads across the board to reap the full economic and social benefits Due to the massive “creative destruction” required DIFFUSION TAKES PLACE IN TWO DISTINCT PERIODS The first half is the INSTALLATION PERIOD led by finance and free markets when innovation concentrates to set up the new infrastructure, let markets pick the new winners and modernize the old economy THE MAJOR BUBBLE COLLAPSE MARKS THE SWING OF THE PENDULUM
  • 5. The shift from financial mania and collapse to Golden Ages occurs when enabled by regulation and policies to shape and widen markets THE HISTORICAL RECORD Bubble prosperities, recessions and golden ages INSTALLATION PERIOD DEPLOYMENT PERIOD TURNING POINT Infrastructure bubbles of first globalisation (Argentina, Australia, USA) Belle Époque (Europe) “Progressive Era” (USA) 1890–95 Railway mania The Victorian Boom 1848–5 0 Canal mania The Great British leap 1793–97 Internet mania and financial casino Global Sustainable ”Golden Age”? 2000 & 2007/8 -???? The roaring twenties Post-war Golden age Europe 1929–33 USA 1929–43 Bubble prosperity Maturity “ Golden Age” prosperity Collapse & Recessions 1771 Britain 1829 Britain 1875 Britain / USA Germany 1908 USA 1971 USA 1 st 2 nd 3 rd 4 th 5 th GREAT SURGE Year country
  • 6. Each style became “the good life” redefining people’s desires and guiding innovation trajectories EACH GOLDEN AGE HAS BROUGHT A CHANGE IN LIFESTYLES with new life-shaping goods and services that open vast new market directions Age of Steam, Coal, Iron and Railways 1850s-1860s Urban, industry-based VICTORIAN LIVING in Britain DEPLOYMENT PERIOD LIFESTYLE Age of Steel and Heavy Engineering 1890s-1910s Urban, cosmopolitan lifestyle of THE BELLE EPOQUE in Europe Age of the Automobile, oil and Mass Production 1950s-1960s Suburban, energy-intensive AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE 2010s-20??s Will the developed and emerging countries develop a variety of ICT-intensive “GREEN” SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLES? Age of global ICT
  • 7. WHY TWO PERIODS? WHY THE BUBBLE? Once the bubbles collapse, the job is done THE NEW PARADIGM IS INSTALLED AND CAN BE DEPLOYED But that requires a structural shift away from the casino economy RESISTANCE TO THE NEW Old industries old habits old methods Need a period of CREATIVE DESTRUCTION to force modernization UNCERTAINTY Which products? Which technologies? Which companies? Which markets? Need to experiment in ferocious “free market” COMPETITION NATURE OF INFRASTRUCTURES All or nothing Invest up-front Revenues come later Need credit creation through bubble boom and short-term CAPITAL GAINS
  • 8. The length of the process depends on the social and political forces The last time around it took over a decade and a major war THREE TASKS FOR GOVERNMENTS AT THE TURNING POINT, AFTER THE MAJOR CRASH: DONE… even overdone This time global finance needs both national redesign and a global regulatory “floor” STILL ON THE DRAWING BOARD RARELY BEING CONSIDERED AS SUCH But recovery will be very difficult without it Intensive therapy for finance 1 Redesign of regulation and financial architecture 2 Enable a STRUCTURAL SHIFT in the real economy 3
  • 9. THE NEW TECHNOLOGICAL POTENTIAL changes the relative cost structure and marks the direction of change It is a huge opportunity space for innovation, growth and radical changes in lifestyles The techno-economic paradigm shift happening since the 1970s-80s FROM THE LOGIC OF CHEAP ENERGY (oil) for transport, electricity, synthetic materials, etc. TO THE LOGIC OF CHEAP INFORMATION its processing, transmission and productive use Preference for services and intangible value Huge potential for savings in energy and materials Preference for tangible products and disposability Unthinking use of energy and materials Unavoidable environmental destruction Capacity for environmental friendliness
  • 10. YET, THE NEW PARADIGM IS STILL WRAPPED IN THE OLD WHY? Because in the crucial 1990s we had cheap oil and cheap Asian labour which favoured the stretching of the old marketing and consumption patterns Mass production disposability and high use of energy and materials are still with us TO CONTINUE ON THIS ROUTE WE WOULD NEED SEVEN PLANETS! An automobile in 1898 The first automobiles looked like horse driven carriages Reproduction: L.De Vries. 1972
  • 11. CHANGE IN THE ECONOMICS OF THE PRODUCTION, TRANSPORT AND DISTRIBUTION OF TANGIBLE GOODS Optimal relocation and geographic re-specialization of physical production Gradual redesign of the consumption patterns for the “good life” CHANGE IN BUSINESS STRATEGIES CHANGE IN GOVERNMENT POLICIES THE UNAVOIDABLE PATH OF THE CURRENT GLOBALIZATION PATTERN Rising prices of oil and raw materials Rising packaging and freight costs Visible effects of increasing global warming Rising climatic risks and insurance costs
  • 12. HOW WAS THE MASS PRODUCTION GOLDEN AGE UNLEASHED ? ? Through very strict financial regulation in each country Glass Steagall, “Chinese walls”, deposit insurance, capital export controls, etc. International stability through the Bretton Woods agreements US dollar as “gold”, IMF, GATT, World Bank (then IBRD), etc. Keynesian policies for stable growth within national borders Counter-cyclical measures, stimulus spending, etc. and a set of policies… … INDUCING STRUCTURAL CHANGE IN FAVOR OF MASS CONSUMPTION!
  • 13. THE SYNERGISTIC CONDITIONS THAT SHAPED THE POST WAR GOLDEN AGE They were provided in different proportions in each “First World” country Cheap oil and materials Universal electricity Road and airway networks INNOVATION ENABLERS FOR MASS PRODUCTION FACILITATORS OF DEMAND GROWTH FOR MASS CONSUMPTION Welfare State Public procurement Labour unions Personal credit system FORCES SHAPING THE DIRECTION OF INNOVATION Suburbanization Post-war reconstruction R&D funding Cold war
  • 14. A POSITIVE-SUM GAME AND BROUGHT THE GREATEST BOOM IN HISTORY THAT TURNED THE WORKERS INTO MIDDLE INCOME CONSUMERS
  • 15. The new global positive-sum game Full internet access at low cost is equivalent to electrification and suburbanization in facilitating demand (and, this time, also education) Revamping transport, energy, products, production and consumption patterns to make them sustainable is equivalent to post-war reconstruction and the spread of suburbia Incorporating successive new millions into sustainable consumption patterns is equivalent to the Welfare State and government procurement in terms of demand creation Universal ICT “ GREEN” GROWTH FULL GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
  • 16. And the elements are interconnected But we need policy consensus involving government, business and society Internet access is the social and geographic frontier of the global market ICTs are the main enabling instruments of sustainability Only with sustainable production and consumption patterns Is globalization possible ICT “ GREEN” FULL GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
  • 17. “ GREEN” is not only about saving the planet It is about saving the economy and having a high (but different) quality of life GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT is not only a humanitarian goal It is about healthy growth, markets and employment in the advanced, emerging and developing worlds
  • 18. Would provide a vast new opportunity space for innovation and wealth creation Would fulfill the needs of people in emerging and developing countries without sacrificing those of the advanced ones Would avoid climatic catastrophes and extreme prices in energy and materials A MASSIVE “GREEN” SHIFT IN PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION PATTERNS GLOBALLY BUT IT CANNOT HAPPEN BY IMPOSITION OR MOVED BY GUILT OR FEAR BUT BY DESIRE AND ASPIRATION “ GREEN” MUST BECOME THE “LUXURY LIFE”
  • 19. WHAT LOOKS IMPOSSIBLE NOW MAY SEEM OBVIOUS LATER In mid-1930s DEPRESSION it seemed impossible to imagine… … that blue collar workers would have lifetime jobs and fully equipped suburban houses with a car at the door Shifts in consumption patterns shift profit-making opportunities … or that most colonies would gain independence … the new middle classes rising in the developing world widened world markets for mass production by adopting the “American Way of Life” … and innovations in distribution logistics have made organic foods the premium segment in supermarkets But later it was obvious that… … increasing wages created many more millions of consumers for mass production and sustained growth And it seemed impossible in the late 1960s… … to expect some of the values of the hippie movement [back to natural materials, organic food, etc.] to become the luxury norms … innovations in natural textile fibers have transformed the world of high fashion But it is now obvious that…
  • 20. THE TECHNOLOGICAL STAGE IS SET TODAY FOR THE GLOBAL GOLDEN AGE OF THE 21 st CENTURY It is up to business, government and society to agree on the convergent actions for making it a reality
  • 21. Another important lesson that Chris Freeman taught us is that: Beyond the interdisciplinary understanding of the economy ACADEMIC WORK MUST ENGAGE IN THE BETTERMENT OF SOCIETY Will we reach the golden age or waste the opportunity? WE SHALL ALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OUTCOME
