Knowledge and Power: The Information Theory of Capitalism and How it is Revolutionizing our World
Knowledge and Power: The Information Theory of Capitalism and How it is Revolutionizing our World, sings in celebration of capitalism. The particular lens that Gilder applies involves the intensity of impact from the information revolution on society. Gilder uses a conversational style of writing to express thoughtful and clear views on support for entrepreneurship and unfettered capitalism as key to building and maintaining a world in which all members of society achieve gains. I’ve read Gilder for decades and found much in this book to be so familiar as to seem repetitive. To avoid that becoming boring, Gilder has peppered the text with recent and current examples of the themes he explores. Every capitalist who reads this book will find something to like. Socialists will find the prose of a worthy adversary that requires a cogent response. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Knowledge and Power from amazon.com.
