Philip E. Auerswald - The Code Economy: A Forty-Thousand Year History
The great driver of human civilization, Auerswald proposes, has been and continues to be code. From the earliest inventions to innovations in how we accomplish tasks, code has allowed us to move from one stage to the next. In this elegant and illuminating look at human history, Auerswald a professor of public policy at George Mason University and also co-founder and co-editor of Innovations, a journal focusing on entrepreneurial solutions to global challenges, shows us how to prepare for a future that will require us to reinvent, through code, how we work and who we are.
Auerswald will be in conversation with Kristin Sharp, executive director of New America and Bloomberg’s joint initiative, SHIFT: The Commission on Work, Workers, and Technology.
