The Coming of Neo-Feudalism book cover
The Coming of Neo-Feudalism
A Warning to the Global Middle Class
Joel Kotkin - 2020-05-12
Goodreads Rating
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
Software as Right-Wing Extremism (Forerunners)
David Golumbia - 2016-09-26
Goodreads Rating
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!      source

Nassim Nicholas Taleb - 2012-11-27
Goodreads Rating
Discover how to thrive in a world of uncertainty with this revolutionary investigation of transparency, risk, and decision-making. Antifragile proposes that chaos and disorder are necessary for certain things to survive and prosper, and that being "antifragile" is far more valuable than simply being resilient. Covering topics ranging from urban planning to personal finance, and drawing from voices of ancient wisdom, this erudite and witty book by Nassim Nicholas Taleb will change the way you view the world.
