Globalization and Technocapitalism: The Political Economy of Corporate Power and Technological Domination
As technological creativity, corporate research, and talent flows become more important than ever, Globalization and Technocapitalism explores the manner in which globalization acquires new contextual features that will become central to the macro-social dynamics of the twenty-first century. It thus sheds light on the resultant growth in global inequalities and more intrusive forms of global domination that are grounded in emerging sectors, its diverse fields and related advances in computing and telecommunications.
