Our friend Ralph Benko has a review of George Gilder’s most recent book:
There is, of course, a conservative or libertarian way of addressing the problems caused by Big Data. My old friend George Gilder, a well-respected high tech (and conservative economic) guru has written a splendid book,Life After Google: The Fall of Big Data and The Rise of the Blockchain Economy. It points us in the right direction.
Why listen to Gilder? Gilder wrote the “bible” of the Reagan Revolution, the million-selling Wealth and Poverty, andwas the living author most quoted by President Reagan. Thereafter, Gilder’s book on the microchip, Microcosm, predicted how the silicon chip would create trillions of dollars of value, and — not so incidentally — transform our lives. It did so.
