Tech and the Dark Side of Prosperity in the San Francisco Bay Area

Book - 2018
Rate this:
The San Francisco Bay Area is currently the jewel in the crown of capitalism - the tech capital of the world and a gusher of wealth from the Silicon Gold Rush. It generates jobs, spawns innovation, and spreads ideas that changing lives. So what could be wrong? There is a dark side of success: overheated bubbles and spectacular crashes; exploding inequality and millions of underpaid workers; a boiling housing crisis, mass displacement, and severe environmental damage; a delusional tech elite and complicity with the worst in American politics.
