David Nagel


Speech given at Session 2: World Communication: Where is Technology Leading Us? If technology is driving economics, in exactly what way is it driving it, and why is it driving it? Mr. Nagel gave an overview of exactly how fast technology is changing. He posits that it is changing so fast that instead of a quantitative change, it is appropriate to think of it as a qualitative change. More specifically, that change is leading to a fundamental transformation in the way that commerce itself is conducted.
