Rifkin makes technophiles and bureaucrats extremely uncomfortable. The president and founder of the Foundation on Economic Trends, he has been influential in shaping public policy on a variety of environmental and technology issues, testifying before congressional committees as well as in litigation to counter irresponsible government policy. The author of Entropy, Algeny, Time Wars, Biosphere Politics, Voting Green (written with his fellow activist and wife, Carol Grunewald Rifkin), and The End of Work, he has helped catapult environmental issues into the public domain through his social commentary and activism.
