My guest today is Michael Shawn Malone, an American author, columnist, editor, investor, businessman, television producer, and has been the host of several shows on PBS.[1][2] Currently (2009), Malone is a columnist for ABC News, an op-ed contributor for The Wall Street Journal, a contributing editor to Wired, and the editor-in-chief of Edgelings.com, a website focused on business and technology news in Silicon Valley. He graduated from Santa Clara University in 1975, and received his MBA from SCU in 1977.

The topic is his book The Autonomous Revolution: Reclaiming the Future We’ve Sold to Machines.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • William H. Davidow and Michael S. Malone go deeply into the enormous implications of these developments. They show why increases in productivity no longer translate into increases in the GDP and how zero cost, one-to-many communications have been turned into tools for cybercrime and propaganda. Many of the book’s recommendations–such as using taxes to control irresponsible internet behavior and enabling people to put their data into what are essentially virtual personal information “safety deposit boxes”–are bold and visionary, but we must figure out how we will deal with these emerging challenges now, before the Autonomous Revolution overcomes us.
