154: Consequences of Innovations

Fraser rounds out the series on Diffusion of Innovations by Everett M Rogders by discussing the 11th and final chapter in the book entitled “Consequences of Innovations”. Fraser discusses Rogers’ three types of consequences: Desirable vs Undesirable, Intended vs Unintended and Anticipated vs Unanticipated. He also looks at the question of the impact of diffusion efforts on equality and the ideal rate of change that allows a social system to adopt innovations without producing too much instability in the social order.
