Technology


Capitalism is morphing into something new and different. As information technology slowly dismantles the past economy of markets, wages, and private ownership, the ways we behave, work, and live are changing. Paul Mason navigates this shift and plots a course to a more socially just and sustainable economy.

Douglas Rushkoff investigates the systemic issues that set the rich against the poor and the technologists against everybody else and offers ways to optimize our economy for the human beings it’s supposed to be serving.
