This 11 minute video in two parts offers an overview of the three forces of change in the past 100 years which helped create the modern world. Part 1 looks at how the three drivers of change - global exchange networks, competitive markets and increasing use of energy - began to operate with more and more power. Part 2 looks at the rates of innovation in this time - in food production and in the rise of a global middle class, which has led to a rise in the standards of living, life expectancy and educational levels. This modern revolution has led to a human dominance of the earth's biosphere (the anthropocene era) with subsequent increased consumption of energy, extinction of species, and growth of weaponry.
