Chapter 8: The Future is Ready

Each chapter of the book, The Company Citizen, has footnotes. As most of these are web links they cannot be readily accessed from the book. So here they are. Those numbered ‘a’, ‘b’, etc., are updates: they refer to text between numbered footnotes and not necessarily to the number in their suffix. For example: 14a is a new note which relates to text between note 14 and note 15 but not necessarily to the subject in 14 itself. Go back to ‘The Company Citizen’ here.

 Tim O’Reilly’s new book ‘WTF (What’s the Future)’ describes this part of the economy
as: ‘…how the goals and operation of [the financial system] have become radically
disconnected from the market of real goods and services that it was originally created
to support (Oct 2017)’ https://news.impactalpha.com/wtf-programming-the-master-algorithm-for-the-future-we-want-podcast-37e3f523f5e
