The rise of ‘Technocapitalism’ and its impact on humanity, with economist Loretta Napoleoni

Loretta Napoleoni is an Italian economist and journalist whose books include “Rogue Economics” and “Insurgent Iraq.” Her newest book is “Technocapitalism: The Rise of the New Robber Barons and the Fight for the Common Good.

In this interview, she explains the concept of the “present future.” This refers to the disorienting era in which we’re living, characterized by rapid technological change that creates anxiety and a feeling of being constantly behind.

She also discusses the control of technology by a few powerful entrepreneurs, whom she calls “technocapitalists,” and the failure of society and the state to direct technological innovation for the common good.
