The Terrifying Future of Inequality
Imagine a future in which algorithms - running round the world and round the clock - skim every potential investment opportunity within nanoseconds. Assets (property, wine, fine art, stamps, land) are all digitized and traded electronically. Large corporations of funds scour the earth consuming identifies opportunities before they reach the public and become levers of personal wealth. What would this mean for our increasingly unequal societies? How can we anticipate this future? And how can we avoid becoming vassals of faceless corporations, stripped of our individual capacity for wealth creation.
