Produktbeschreibung
This book will summarize what we know about technology and inequality across disciplines, and seek out new ways to analyze this relationship based on technology and business practices, with the objective of restoring digital technology as an engine of opportunity.

A clear conceptual framework will be used to analyze key industry case studies: search engines, social media, and the 'sharing' economy.
