In an uncertain and rapidly changing world, Steve Forbes sits down with today’s leading business and economic minds to give listeners a better grasp of what’s ahead, and shares his own perspectives on the day’s most pressing issues.
George Gilder, technologist and economist, discusses his recently published book Life After Google: The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy. With his eyes constantly on the future, to Gilder it’s clear: the internet as we know it will soon be upended with the coming cryptocosm.
Gilder also speaks to why Google's business plan is causing it to have a nervous breakdown, the fear of computers taking over the world and the obsolescence of centralized data privacy because it’s simply not safe. Plus, hear about the inventive ways in which Chinese companies have figured out how to collect revenue from customers without an over-reliance on advertising.
