Segment 2: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity
An Interview with Douglas Rushkoff
Why doesn’t the explosive growth of companies like Facebook and Uber deliver more prosperity for everyone?
In this segment, Jerry is joined by American media theorist, writer, and lecturer, Douglas Rushkoff to discuss his latest book, Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity. Dr. Rushkoff is a critic of the present financial system and advocates for open-source solutions over closed-loop corporate/government solutions.
According to the inside cover of his latest book:
In this interview, we ask Dr. Douglas Rushkoff several thought-provoking questions, such as:
- How has modern technology led our society to being more consumption-driven than ever?
- How can peer-to-peer technology of the Internet be applied to America's education system?
- How is the idea of "perpetual growth" bankrupting our society?
- Explain one of your quotes: "If you are not a programmer, you are one of the programmed".
- The introduction of written text led to Judaism, the printing press led to Protestantism. What will be the result of humanity's new digital era of computer programming?
Plus, Douglas explains an epiphany he had as a young man that humans are meant to function in a "read-write" world, but instead we are existing in a "read-only" world. Enjoy the interview!
