Under Silicon Valley: Understanding tech's grip on society.

Economist Rob Larson explores the mechanisms of tech’s dominance over society - as network dynamics create monopolies and build ideological and political power faster than outdated and weakened anti-trust laws, we have to seize the technology sector for the public good.

Rob is author of Bit Tyrants: The Political Economy of Silicon Valley from Haymarket Books.
