Wealth of Humans: In Conversation with Ryan Avent
A powerfully prophetic discussion about the meaning of work in the 21st century as technology transforms all areas of the global economy.
Ryan Avent, economics columnist at The Economist, and Azeem Azhar, curator of Exponential View, explore issues around how digital technologies are, and will continue to exponentially change the relationship between capital and labour.
They discuss what new social contracts will ensue, and how we will see the reshaping of social and cultural capital in a dramatically reordered world. What role for the human in this altered landscape, how will they find meaning and purpose in redefined and irrevocably renegotiated relationships to productivity and the market?
This conversation was recorded as a fireside chat in front of a live audience at a private Exponential View event in London.
