How is technology changing the world
Between never-ending Facebook scandals and debates over fake news and polarization, the general public seems to be more aware than ever of the extent to which software governs our daily lives. “People are unsettled by it, but they still don’t know anything about how the software came to be and why these creators decided to tackle these problems and build these tools,” says Clive Thompson, a technology journalist and author ofCoders: The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World. “There’s always this mystery behind the people who actually make the software, and at the same time there has historically been a pretty inaccurate vision that comes out of Hollywood and TV,” Thompson says.

The data point is part of a broader trend with widespread consequences for productivity, inflation, and global growth, economists say. Fund managers are taking notice of "secular stagnation" conditions often associated with persistent low inflation and low growth, and adjusting their allocations accordingly.
