Newt Gingrich on Foreign Policy

Former Republican Representative (GA-6) and Speaker of the House


Lead the world into Third Wave Information Age

In Alvin & Heidi Toffler’s first bestseller, Future Shock, [they expressed the] view-with which I agree-the transformation we are experiencing is so large and historic that it can be compared with only two other great eras of human history-the Agricultural Revolution and the Industrial Revolution.

The Agricultural Revolution-the “First Wave”-occurred when hunting-and-gathering tribes first invented agriculture. Then, a second wave of change occurred in the 18th century with the development of power-driven industry.

Now we are entering a third great era of change, the transformation to the Information Age. There will be enormous advantages for Americans if we lead the world in the transition to the Third Wave Information Age. Just as Britain profited enormously by leading the world into the industrial era, so the US can profit enormously by being the leader in the development of the new goods, services, systems, and standards associated with a technological revolution of this scale.
