In my last post, I have compared INDUSTRY 5.0 with concepts of SOCIETY 5.0 and INDUSTRY 4.0. Today I would like to continue and visualize the similarities between INDUSTRY 4.0 and SOCIETY 5.0, for I think, these concepts have been introduced with the same aim — to boost up the economy.

Starting with the older of both, with INDUSTRY 4.0, it was introduced in Germany by German SIEMENS company back in 2011, shortly after the economic and industrial downturn of Germany. It was introduced during one of the industrial exhibitions and already during the first presentation to the public, with strong support from the German government.

It is well described in the English version of WIKIPEDIA, which says, among others.

Already after the first presentation, many rise hands to join the club and the group who have governmental approval to cover the social order for developing a tool serving to boost up the economy. The direct influence of the German government secures among other meaning strong funding.

As a result, two years later, at the same exhibition, the official version of INDUSTRY 4.0 was introduced by the INDUSTRY 4.0 working group. This year is being understood by many as the year of INDUSTRY 4.0 global launch.

Just shortly after that, I discovered myself there is a system failure and started to correct it by preventing waste happens, developing INDUSTRIAL UPCYCLING and two years later, after many realized implementation projects, the INDUSTRY 5.0, but this is another story.

In early 2016, in Japan, the concept of SOCIETY 5.0 was introduced. Same as in Germany, the Japanese government, through the voice of Shinzo Abe, the reelected Prime minister, direct order have been placed to develop a new system which will help not only to boost the economy but outplace the INDUSTRY 4.0 (which was in fact already present in the country for much longer time, just not named).

The responsibility for the development was not given to industrial players, who fail, but to the economist and financial institutions.

It took two years (2014–2016) to develop and frame. After this time SOCIETY 5.0 was officially introduced. Unlike the German government, the Japanese one fully stays and backup the new system, immediately adopting the principles and sharing it globally. Not only it delivers the message Japan care for the Japanese people, but it outplaced 4.0 with 5.0 and deliver next victory.

Unfortunately, the content reminds the same.

Hunting for more.

Both governments intention was to surplus the economic downturn with the increase of production volume connected to the increased volume of monetary means on the market. It is interesting that none doubt about the growing discrepancy between the production volume and consumption volumes, which clearly indicates the more money is put into the “industrialization and socialization” the less is available to the people at the end.

Both concepts are set to the world to increase production volumes and to increase the dependency of citizens on production outputs, on technology and data. It seems to me, that virtual reality is becoming the only true one.

This is the main reason why not only the development but the implementation is so strongly funded not only by governments but banks, institutions, investors, for investment delivers more money and profit. Almost risk-free for the government and global financial institutions and organizations are already involved.

INDUSTRY 4.0 and SOCIETY 5.0 have been developed upon the social order

INDUSTRY 5.0 was born naturally

I am the father of INDUSTRY 5.0 and do all to support my child´s healthy growth. I do not deliver and seek for revolution, we evolve together. Slowly we become strong, not being fed by money and financial means, but by the results of our own work, the work of our hands, hearts, and minds. This is what we do and this is what INDUSTRY 5.0 represents.

INDUSTRY 5.0 is approved by results, not the political will.
