New Barbarian Manifesto: How to Survive the Information Age by Ian O./AngellIan Angell



Welcome to the Brave New World of the New Barbarian Manifesto. This is a brutal and brutish world, a world of barbarians, where the certainties of the twentieth century, its power bases, its institutions are collapsing.

Ian Angell, dubbed "the Angell of Doom" by The (London) Times, lays out his manifesto for the New Barbarians who will lead the economic elite into a Brave New World over the next two decades. He rejects the long-held view of information technology as our benign liberator from mundane work. Instead, he regards it as the seed for a new society, in which the winners in the knowledge economy will construct their own "smart regions" founded on libertarian principles and enlightened self-interest. The losers, however, face a bleak future
