EBOOK del autor LANIER JARON (ISBN ) en PDF o EPUB book that will have people talking and arguing for years into the future Lee Smolin. PDF | Investment in new energy technologies is inadequate relative to the timescale on which greenhouse emissions need to be reduced. Author Jaron Lanier touches on self-driving cars, financial algorithms, climate change, a fair economic system and dozens of other complex topics.
The digital revolution we are living through is different.
Instead of leaving a greater number of us in excellent financial health, the effect of digital technologies - and the companies behind them - is to concentrate wealth, reduce growth, and challenge the livelihoods of an ever-increasing number of people. As the protections of the middle class disappear, washed away by crises in capitalism, what is being left in their place?
And what else could replace them?
Why is th… Who Owns The Future? Why is this happening, and what might we do about it?
In Who Owns the Future? Jaron Lanier shows how the new power paradigm operates, how it is conceived and controlled, and why it is leading to a collapse in living standards. Arguing that the information economy ruins markets, he reminds us that markets should reward more people, not fewer. He shows us why the digital revolution means more corporations making money and avoiding risk by hiding value off their books, which means more financial risk for the rest of us.
From the inner workings of the sirenic servers at the heart of the new power system, to an exploration of the meaning of mass unemployment events, the misuse of big data, and the deep and increasing erasure of human endeavour, Lanier explores the effects of this situation on democracy and individuals, and proposes a more human, humane reality, where risk and reward is shared equally, and the digital revolution creates opportunity for all.
