This book is essential reading for any wonk.
Auerwald's ideas and writing style are simultaneously provocative and sober.
I particularly enjoyed Auerswald's historical literacy regarding the giants of Economic Theory, such as Adam Smith, Henry George, and Joseph Schumpeter.
In a narrative which spans forty-thousand years, Auerswald examines the "code" undergirding numerous complex systems ranging from the cities of Ancient Mesopotamia to the Burning Man festival.
My favorite portion of this book is part thee, "The Human Advantage"
In this section Auerswald contends that humans will always posses a crucial advantage over all forms of digital technology.
Specifically, Auwerswald states, "Humans are better at being human."
L.J. Ganser, as always, delivers an excellent performance. Ganser has long been one of my favorites.
