The Coming of Neo-Feudalism book cover
The Coming of Neo-Feudalism
A Warning to the Global Middle Class
Joel Kotkin - 2020-05-12
Calificación de Goodreads
The Coming of Neo-Feudalism explores the alarming return towards a more feudal era marked by a concentration of wealth, reduced upward mobility, demographic stagnation, and increased dogmatism. The book argues that a new class structure, resembling that of medieval times, is emerging, with a clerical elite dominating the upper rank and tech oligarchs at the top. It also highlights the decline of the middle class and the rise of the property-less population. The author believes that with understanding and opposition, these trends can still be reversed.

The Politics of Bitcoin book cover
The Politics of Bitcoin
Software as Right-Wing Extremism (Forerunners)
David Golumbia - 2016-09-26
Calificación de Goodreads
This digital publication, part of the Forerunners: Ideas First series, delves into the political ideologies behind the promotion and use of Bitcoin and blockchain technologies. The Politics of Bitcoin exposes the surprising extent to which far-right political thought influences the cyberlibertarianism supporters of Bitcoin embrace. The book offers insight into the economic and political ideas that fuel the cryptocurrency movement, drawing on the work of scholars and thinkers ranging from Milton Friedman to Federal Reserve conspiracy theorists.

David Columbia"s book "The Politics of Bitcoin: Software as Right-Wing Extremism" does show that crypto has an extreme right wing ideology even if it is only a patina used to cover utter capitalistic greed and selfishness. They even love to destroy the environment to profit!      fuente
Antifrágil book cover
Things That Gain from Disorder (Incerto)
Nassim Nicholas Taleb - 2012-11-27
Calificación de Goodreads
En El cisne negro, Taleb planteó un problema (el de las repercusiones que causan las cosas que nadie puede prever…) y en Antifrágil nos ofrece una solución definitiva: cómo obtener beneficios del desorden y el caos, al tiempo que nos protegemos de las fragilidades y de los acontecimientos adversos. Lo que Taleb denomina “lo antifrágil” va más allá de lo robusto, puesto que se beneficia de los shocks, las incertidumbres y del estrés, del mismo modo que los huesos humanos se robustecen cuando están sometidos al estrés y a la tensión. Lo “antifrágil” necesita el desorden para sobrevivir y florecer. Taleb se centra en la incertidumbre como algo deseable, incluso necesario, y propone que las cosas se construyan de una forma antifrágil. Lo antifrágil es inmune a los errores de predicción. Sumamente ambicioso y multidisciplinario, nos ofrece un programa sobre cómo comportarnos –y prosperar- en un mundo que no comprendemos, y que es demasiado incierto como para que intentemos comprenderlo y predecirlo. El mensaje de Taleb, documentado e ingenioso, es revolucionario: Lo que no es antifrágil perecerá con toda seguridad.
