Digital tech was supposed to usher in an age of prosperity, but so far it has put industrial capitalism on steroids. Social networks surrender their missions to data mining, and banks abandon investing for algorithms- all to stoke growth. Startups sell for billions but destroy more jobs and markets than they create.

Rushkoff shares his ideas around a new economic program using the unique distributive power of the internet to break free of the winner-take-all game defining business today.
