Everything You’ve Ever Learned

Science and technology can be redemptive forces for the world. But on the wings of transformative science and technology, we traded, among other things, a strong manufacturing base that provided secure jobs and decent livelihoods for a gig economy that doesn’t. We invested in innovation that created untold wealth, and let a tiny portion of society capture most of it. We celebrate the creative destruction of technological innovation, but a good society would be one that figures out how to use its immense financial and technological powers not just to nourish the creation but to mitigate the destruction.
