Are Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos the new feudal elite?
Anand Giridharadas talks to INET President Rob Johnson about how the titans of Silicon Valley use “philanthropy” to control more of our lives.
We Americans revere the creation of wealth. Anand Giridharadas wants us to examine this and how it shapes our life together. This is a challenging conversation but a generative one: about the implicit moral equations behind a notion like “win-win” — and the moral compromises in a cultural consensus we’ve reached, without reflecting on it, about what and who can save us.
Henry Crown fellow Anand Giridharadas delivers his keynote address, “The Thriving World, The Wilting World, & You,” at the 2015 Aspen Action Forum.
