Free Exchange: Is the internet destroying democracy?


We recently welcomed Jamie Bartlett to the CapX offices to talk about what happens whenpolitics and technology intersect.

Jamie is the author of The People Vs Tech: How the Internet is Killing Democracy, a book that touches on a number of the most pressing concerns surrounding the rapid pace of technological change and, as the title suggests, what that means for democracy. He spoke to CapX’s Editor-in-Chief Robert Colvile about the ideas in his new book in front of a live audience.

This week’s episode of Free Exchange is an edited version of that conversation. We hope you enjoy it.

You can listen to the full episode here, or subscribe via iTunes.

Oliver Wiseman is the Editor of CapX.
