Description

In How to Fix the Future, Andrew Keen combines his experiences in Silicon Valley with extensive interviews and analysis to identify the strategies we need in order to tackle the huge challenges of this digital century, and shows how we have dealt with radical technological change in the past, especially after the Industrial Revolution.

Travelling around the world, from India to Estonia, Germany to Singapore, he investigates the best (and worst) practices in five key areas - regulation, innovation, social responsibility, consumer choice and education - and concludes by examining whether we are seeing the beginning of the end of the America-centric digital world.

Powerfully argued and deeply engaging, How to Fix the Future provides hope that the economic inequality, unemployment, erosion of privacy and individual alienation that the digital upheaval is causing may still be solvable, and that the future may yet become something that we can look forward to.
