Andrew Keen was among the earliest to write about the dangers of the Internet to our culture and society and he joins us to discuss his new book, How to Fix the Future.
After the huge changes of the Industrial Revolution, civilised societies remade 19th century capitalism into a more humane version of itself – and Andrew shows how we can do the same in the wake of the Digital Revolution.
He identifies five broad strategies to tackle the digital future and travels the world to find best (and worst!) practices in each area. In doing he so, he aims to provide hope that the economic inequality, unemployment, cultural decay, war on privacy and individual alienation caused by the digital upheaval may still be solvable so that we can look forward to the future.
