#3 What is Toeffler’s Third Wave theory and where do you think Thailand is in his suggested theory of change?
“Toeffler’s theory describes about how human life was changed by different time. This theory separates into 3 waves which are first, second, and third wave. These waves can be called wave of changes. In order to answer this question, third wave is the manufacturing era. Modern life (technology included) begins in this wave, money doesn’t important as before because there’s credit card instead of and it causes convenience to all of us. There’re a lot of new inventions in this period which make our life be easier. In my opinion, Thailand is in third wave. As you see in nowadays, we’re growing up with technology and conveniences.”
