Despite seeming dramatic for developed countries, the so called “fourth industrial revolution” appears as an opportunity to undeveloped communities. The “productivity jump”, the local development and the spread of technology to everyone, are some of these good news. States and organizations should open political and legal frameworks so as to allow new structures to emerge and compete. New technologies make new citizens and we must let the outcomes be, since no state could foresee their unintended consequences. Since new strategies and institutions would emerge, custom, institutional competition and imitation could enable the flourishing of the emerging economies.
