Free Exchange: Jamie Susskind on Future Politics


This week we’re bringing you a recording of a CapX Live event held at our offices last week. I sat down with Jamie Susskind to talk about his new book, Future Politics.

Jamie’s book is an invaluable, and at times terrifying, guide to the ways in which we are hopelessly unprepared for the rapid technological change is going to transform politics.

Jamie and I spoke about what these transformative new technologies are, how worried we should be about big tech, why so many politicians get technology so badly wrong, and whether the core principles of political philosophy are still relevant in the digital age. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
