Monday, April 11, 2016 Ch.11 Essential Readings The world is spiky by Richard Florida many economists believe that advances in technology have leveled the global playing field, making the world “flat” Florida argues otherwise — he says “the world is not at all flat… it’s spiky” the most obvious challenges to the flat-world hypothesis is the explosive growth of cities worldwide; more people are clustering in urban areas ~50% 3 types of places that make up the modern economic landscape: tallest peaks — cities that generate innovations, have capacity to attract global talent and create new products and industries hills — places that manufacture the world’s established goods, support valleys — places with little connection to the global economy and few immediate prospects population and economic activity are both spiky, but it’s innovation - the engine of economic growth- that is most concentrated commercial innovation and scientific advances are both highly concentrated - but not always in the same places - they few places that have both have little to fear and much to gain from continuing globalization although one might not have to emigrate to innovate, it certainly appears that innovation, economic growth, and prosperity occur in those places that attract a critical mass of top creative talent the world today looks flat to some because the economic and social distances between peaks world-wide have gotten smaller Leviathan Stirs Again from “The Economist” the great debate about the proper size and role of the state had been resolved about 15 years ago when Tony Blair and Bill clinton pronounced the last rites of “the era of big government” “the golden straightjacket” 1 Monday, April 11, 2016 today, big government is back — Britain’s public spending is set to exceed 50% and america’s financial capital has shifted from new York to DC and the government has been trying to extend its control over the health-care industry the obvious reason for changing devotion of GDP to public spending is the financial crisis the expansion of the sate in both Britain and America met with widespread approval the demand for public services will soar in the coming decades, thanks to the aging of the population the level of public spending is only on indication of the state’s power america’s federal government employees many bureaucrats whose job is to write and apply federal regulations the power of these regulators is growing - they’re making new rules from the amount of capital that banks have to set aside to what to do about them when they fail fear of terrorism and worries about rising crime have also inflated the state Authoritarian informationalism by Min Jiang main topic- Beijing’s effort to regulate the internet clinton was confident that the US would benefit economically from greater access to Chinese markets and that the internet would spread liberty in china in retrospect both of those things happened BUT he underestimated Beijing’s determination and capabilities to regulate the Chinese internet to its liking the Chinese state council information office responded with the The Internet in China, a white paper on Chinese internet policy outlines basic principled of internet regulation in a country of 420 million internet users proclaiming the internet is under the jurisdiction of Chinese sovereignty and should be respected and protected. Beijing’s cyber approach and practices are inseparable from its legitimacy in 5 major areas: 2 Monday, April 11, 2016 economy, nationalism, ideology, culture, and governance beyond the well-known “Great Fire-wall of China,” a technological filtering system blocking “harmful” foreign content at china’s international gateway to the WWW, the state also adopts a multi-layered censorship approach in the future, China’s internet policies will continue to reflect what the author calls authoritarian informationalism, an internet development and regulatory model that combines elements of capitalism, authoritarianism, and confucianism 3
