Alec Ross on THE RAGING 2020s!
Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome NYT bestselling author and former innovation and technology advisor in the Obama administration Alec Ross to our virtual event space! We'll be celebrating the launch of his new book, The Raging 2020s, on Thursday, October 21st at 6pm MT. The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free.
For 150 years, there has been a contract. Companies hold the power to shape our daily lives. The state holds the power to make them fall in line. And the people hold the power to choose their leaders. But now, this balance has shaken loose. As the market consolidates, the lines between big business and the halls of Congress have become razor-thin. Private companies have become as powerful as countries. As Walter Isaacson said about Alec Ross’s first book, The Industries of the Future, “The future is already hitting us, and Ross shows how it can be exciting rather than frightening.”
Through interviews with the world’s most influential thinkers and stories of corporate activism and malfeasance, government failure and renewal, and innovative economic and political models, Ross proposes a new social contract—one that resets the equilibrium between corporations, the governing, and the governed.
Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).
