In modern history, the story of capitalism has been a story of firms and financiers. That's all going to change thanks to the Big Data revolution. As Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, best-selling author of Big Data, and Thomas Ramge, who writes for The Economist, show, data is replacing money as the driver of market behavior. Big finance and big companies will be replaced by small groups and individual actors who make markets instead of making things: think Uber instead of Ford, or Airbnb instead of Hyatt.
This is the dawn of the era of data capitalism. Will it be an age of prosperity or of calamity? This audiobook provides the indispensable roadmap for securing a better future.

Honestly, I expected a lot more from this book. After I finished, I felt like it was just a waste of words. (I have the physical copy too). It’s as if it wasn’t really saying anything. That’s my opinion. It’s also ridiculous to say our future would be incredibly social... When clearly with all this social media, we don’t even interact with each other anymore.

What a load of...
Really looked forward to this book based on title and reviews - forced myself to the end in hope that I might find something insightful. Big Reveal: Data often helps us to make better decisions. beyond that, techno utopian claptrap that is ignorant of history and human behavior, and conflates price with judgement, and markets as the place where we will all self-actualize in data risk collaboration, just as long as we ensure diversity in our AI. My head hurts. It's like Paul Coehlo and Mark Zuckerberg had a love child. Take two aspirin before reading.
