Overview

The world will not live without logos, but neither will capitalism silently take over democracy. So, what comes next? After capitalism comes Netocracy. Those who can harness networks of information and master new forms of communication will control finance and legislation, forming the new business and government elites. They will inherit the power; they are the Netocrats.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Read it for the reason business information company Reuters published it: to understand why power in your workplace and your world isn't where you thought." New Scientist

"Contains interesting insights (into the growing likelihood of populist violence among the displaced and dispossessed.)" New Statesman

"An extraordinary book." Computer Weekly

"Digging deeper and wider than any previous effort into what the information revolution truly means, Netocracy is the must-read for anybody even remotely interested in what those kids out there are actually doing to us all with their gadgets. It's a bigger, more dramatic and very different change from what we had expected. Netocracy is the unsurpassable how and when of this whole revolution." Kjell A. Nordström and Jonas Ridderstrale, authors of Funky Business ¿ talent makes capital dance.

"He's seen the future. A renaissance man of many talents, Bard is either a genius or a madman. You decide" The Times Magazine, July 2003

"Alexander Bard, author of 80 hit singles in Scandinavia, is a record producer, Internet mogul, philosophy enthusiast, and much more." FTDynamo, Euro-Gurus

"Netocracy is a fresh take on the information revolution. Bard and Soderqvist's concepts are clear and meticulously explained...the book is a brave account of the challenges ahead." Mail & Guardian Online (South Africa)
