This paper examines how the concept of a post-industrial society rests on the assumption that social development is essentially driven by technological change. It draws parallels with the Marxist scenario of social change which ushers in a period of social revolution and a growing class struggle. It also explores how there are significant differences between this and the theoretical model espoused by the exponents of post-industrialism.]
From the Paper:"Robert L. Heilbroner in his Business Civilization in Decline defined its core features as: the growing predominance of the tertiary (services) sector over the primary (agriculture and mining) and secondary (manufacturing) sectors of the economy; increasing emphasis on the role of knowledge-based inputs and education; and, finally, a decrease in the highly polarized class conflict of traditional (industrial) capitalism with the emergence of less hierarchical organizational structures more suited to the socio-economic environment of the late 20th century."
