Technology and the Global Economy

Technology continues to drive the pace of globalization. Just as farming gave way to manufacturing in the first Industrial Revolution, and manufacturing gave way to services in the second, so it has been argued that domestic services will give way to border-crossing services in the third and most far-reaching revolution, just now getting under way. Are there technological limits to this process of radical transition? Panel includes Bill Joy.
