The model presented in this paper is not aimed at explaining the nature and fate of capitalism. The model here focuses on the nature of open technological revolutions in which a free market is one of the enabling conditions. Schumpeter’s model does not distinguish between technological development and technological revolution (toasters vs. computers), which is a central distinction of the model in this paper. Distinguishing the power stage from the permeation stage is crucial in identifying those technologies that have a significant level of social impact and consequently will have the most serious ethical impact.
