In The Raging 2020s, Alec Ross... argues that our social contract is broken, that the roles of business, labor, government and foreign countries need to be rethought... An immensely (and unusually) readable account... Like watching a master jewel thief at work, except that this is not the movies, where the transfer is often from rich to poor. Quite the opposite. * New York Times *
Government has ceded authority to corporations, which naturally act in their own interest rather than for the common good... A provocative, well-made case. * Kirkus *
Alec Ross fearlessly confronts one of the fundamental concerns of our time: fixing the broken social contract between people, business, and government. His book will challenge you to rethink some of your assumptions about democracy, capitalism, and globalization. -- Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THINK AGAIN and host of the TED podcast WorkLife
Alec Ross is a keen analyst and brilliant storyteller. The Raging 2020s introduces us to the people whose lives are blighted by unconscionable policies and concentrations of power, helping us understand and indeed share the rage that fuels many 21st century political movements. Best of all, Ross is willing to speak truth to power in recommending a set of bold but realistic solutions. -- Anne-Marie Slaughter, CEO, New America, and Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University
A gripping, illuminating chronicle that provides a wonderful birds-eye view from the heights of government and international business, that solidifies Ross's position among the most visionary of global thinkers on the future of technology and its implications, and that also is an amazingly enjoyable, page-turning read! -- General David Petraeus, former Director of the CIA and former Commander of the Surge in Iraq, US Central Command, and Coalition Forces in Afghanistan
