Capitalism isn't an ideology -- it's an operating system
Bhu Srinivasan researches the intersection of capitalism and technological progress. Instead of thinking about capitalism as a firm, unchanging ideology, he suggests that we should think of it as an operating system -- one that needs upgrades to keep up with innovation, like the impending take-off of drone delivery services. Learn more about the past and future of the free market (and a potential coming identity crisis for the United States' version of capitalism) with this quick, forward-thinking talk.
Bhu Srinivasan writes about economics, history and statecraft.
Bhu Srinivasan's first book, AMERICANA: A 400-Year History of American Capitalism, explores the intersections of democracy and capitalism. The Economist selected it as one of its Best Books of 2017. A venture-backed entrepreneur from his early 20s, Srinivasan has built media properties in publishing, gaming, financial content, and technology ranging from video games to municipal bonds. He is currently working on adapting his book to television, identifying the next big things, and outlining his next book.
