Today we hear a lot of noise about how major platforms, such as Google, are allegedly putting their thumbs on the scale in the favor of their own biased agenda. What is worse. they are doing this WHILE claiming to be fair and non-partisan. But far from someone just going out and “inventing the next platform” that isn’t biased, technology is moving us away from the control or influence of these platforms.

George Gilder sat down with us and discussed his new book, Life After Google. In it he describes a future that we already see emerging, driven by the same kind of technology that powers cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Being firmly engaged in the space, and being on a first-name basis with some of the top leaders in the field, Gilder has his finger on the pulse of our future. It is not a future that will see the likes of Google in charge of the online narrative or able to control content.

From the Amazon page:

“Google’s algorithms assume the world’s future is nothing more than the next moment in a random process. George Gilder shows how deep this assumption goes, what motivates people to make it, and why it’s wrong: the future depends on human action.” — Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal and Palantir Technologies and author of Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future.

GEORGE GILDER, one of the leading economic and technological thinkers of the past forty years, is the author of nineteen books, including Wealth and Poverty, Life after Television, Knowledge and Power, and The Scandal of Money. A founding fellow of the Discovery Institute, where he began his study of information theory, and an influential venture investor, he lives with his wife in western Massachusetts.

Over the next few weeks, we will be providing more of our interview with George Gilder. It was conducted via Skype and is an audio-only recording. Premium subscribers to The Capitalism Report will be able to access the whole fascinating interview. More on that in the coming weeks.

In our first installment, we begin to dig into the FUNDAMENTAL flaw in Google’s thinking, which also reveals why these multi-billionaire tycoons who seem to BENEFIT from capitalism are so much against capitalism for the rest of us and why they lean so far to the left.
