Why doesn’t the explosive growth of companies like Facebook and Uber deliver more prosperity for everyone? What is the systemic problem that sets the rich against the poor and the technologists against everybody else? When protesters shattered the windows of a bus carrying Google employees to work, their anger may have been justifiable, but it was misdirected. The true conflict of our age isn’t between the unem­ployed and the digital elite, or even the 99 percent and the 1 percent. Rather, a tornado of technological improvements has spun our economic program out of control, and humanity as a whole—the protesters and the Google employees as well as the shareholders and the executives—are all trapped by the consequences. It’s time to optimize our economy for the human beings it’s supposed to be serving. In this groundbreaking book, acclaimed media scholar and author Douglas Rushkoff tells us how to combine the best of human nature with the best of modern technology. Tying together disparate threads—big data, the rise of robots and AI, the increasing participation of algorithms in stock market trading, the gig economy, the collapse of the eurozone—Rushkoff provides a critical vocabulary for our economic moment and a nuanced portrait of humans and commerce at a critical crossroads.

Die ersten Nachkriegsdeutschen sind im Rentenalter. Fühlen sich beim wehmütigen Blick zurück aber noch jung. Michael Jürgs, geboren im Mai 1945, gehört zu dieser Generation. In heiterer Gelassenheit schildert er jene aufregenden Zeiten, in denen aus der von Nazis geprägten Demokratur ein Land der Freien wurde – die Bundesrepublik. In denen jede noch so kleine Liebe ein großes Abenteuer war, die Helden John Lennon und Willy Brandt, John F. Kennedy und Rudi Dutschke hießen, es nur zwei Fernsehprogramme gab, in den Milchbars die Hormone tanzten und in verrauchten Kneipen die Revolution besungen wurde. Seine Reise in die Vergangenheit wird immer wieder unterbrochen durch Abstecher in die heutige Welt oder durch Begegnungen mit jungen Propheten und Machern des digitalen Fortschritts. Er geißelt zwar zornig die weltweit wachsende Verrohung und Verblödung im Netz, doch bestaunt ebenso im neugierigen Blick nach vorn die unendlichen Möglichkeiten des Internet.
