By definition, an ideology is rigid, structured and generally immovable. Operating Systems by contrast, are constantly evolving software interfaces that adapt and improve with consistent upgrades.
Economist and Author Bhu Srinivasan argues in this TED Talk that Capitalism is less like an ideology, and more like an operating system. This deft examination of the past, present and future of the Free Market through the lens of technology is fascinating.
Srinivasan is concerned about the coming identity crisis for the United States if we fail to inject flexibility into our understanding of capitalism. Are we prepared to make the necessary upgrades to our Capitalistic system to ensure a stable future?
Listen to this engaging TED Talk, recording in October 2017, at TEDNYC to hear Bhu's compelling argument for a pliable approach to Capitalism in the new centruy.
