This is an annotation from a lecture in 2015. The global Coronavirus pandemic has accelerated this move into the digital realm like nothing before. We are already at a state where the biological virus is less dangerous to us than a global computer virus (collapse of the internet) would be. What to do now? And what does it all mean? Welcome to the first row of watching mankind move to digital (a new episode of Black Mirror :)).
We would like to dig deep into this topic with a leading Czech economist Tomáš Sedláček.
Tomáš Sedláček (1977) became known through his book Economics of Good and Evil (OUP 2009) that was translated into 21 languages and won many prestigious prices in economic literature for original philosophical contribution to economics. He is a former advisor to Czech revolutionary president Vaclav Havel. He was listed among the top 100 most influential global thinkers (Top 100 Thought Leaders, GDI). He was a member of Programme Council for New Economic Thinking of World Economic Forum that meets in Davos and advised EC president Barroso on New Narrative for Europe. He is a sought after speaker, debater and frequent international commentator. He works for the largest Czech bank as a chief macroeconomic strategist. He lectures at Charles University and sits on boards of many non-profit organizations.
