Who runs the world? Political scientist Ian Bremmer argues it's not as simple as it used to be. With some eye-opening questions about the nature of leadership, he asks us to consider the impact of the evolving global order and our choices as participants in the future of democracy.

We have lost control of ideologies, what we think of each other, and our humanity due to technology. Everyone thinks they are on the outside looking in and it really astounds me how far off the average person is. This was a really good Ted talk.
@radnomaden9438 Hace un mes
Humanity never had control of anything regarding how we developed thorough history. All it ever was is every human doing what he was teached to do, and eventually trying to improve that thing but most time making it worse instead. Despite all the theoretical knowledge we developed since the dawn of science, no one in power ever took that knowledge seriously unless it helped him personally to become more powerful.

Professors Martin Gilens (Princeton University) and Benjamin I. Page (Northwestern University) looked at more than 20 years worth of data to answer a simple question: Does the government represent the people? Their study took data from nearly 2000 public opinion surveys and compared it to the policies that ended up becoming law. In other words, they compared what the public wanted to what the government actually did. What they found was extremely unsettling: The opinions of 90% of Americans have essentially no impact at all.

To be a superpower you have to be a team - not politically fractured. To be a superpower all segments of the economy have to work to improve the country - not tear it down or cash out healthy companies for a payday putting millions out of work. Soldiers have to believe in what they are fighting for. Soldiers have to know their country has their back. Citizens must believe in their country and shed a tear now and again when national anthem is played. Personally, I feel the United States is struggling on all these requirements.

It's OK, if the intent is to confirm the correctness of American / Anglo / Transatlantic / Western notions. Because he charmingly confirms their biases as "correct", the typical viewer is very happy with him. That's you think it's "great" when it's just "things I already felt and sort of knew". Had he challenged the audience by saying that it's a delusion, that the American unipolar moment for both security and economics would end before 2030, that would be very uncomfortable and the audience wouldn't like it. Mechanically, it's unimpressive. For example, the most basic use of map color dictates that China is Red, America is Blue, and India is Saffron (Orange) for fastest comprehension.

This is true. However tech companies in many countries are controlled by those governments and as such he missed that important fun fact. I remember a line from a movie which resonates with me but obviously hasn't resonated with others. "It is not the people who should be scared of thier leaders but thier who should be scared of thier people". China is scared shirtless of its people which is why it monitors them and uses various tactics to keep them from making a fuss. Imagine a country of 1.4 to 1.8 billion people getting angry and tell me how any military can control that without killing itself?

I am reminded eerily of the Long Earth Trilogy that I'm reading right now. A really good series of books that look at what humans would do if we have access to infinite number of parallel earths whose exploration is headed by a tech giant with more power than most governments. I'm on book 2 right now, and it is depressing how even with infinite resources, humans still make war based on greed and outdated ideology. Also, the earth's government uses tech to control the long earth, which gives the tech company unparalelled access and power in the parallel earths, which is very similar to how governments are using big tech companies today. This series is very, very well written, but it puts the ugliness of human nature front and centre. Its written by Terry Pratchet and Stephen Baxter. Terry Pratchet had a way of critiquing modern society in the best ways possible and surprise me in his plots. I highly recommend all of his books.

I like his point of view and he's a serious lecturer but I think we overlooked the rise of an A.I. As we speak, technology is transforming the global economy. It will rule the world in the near future and that's the digital order. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning are the foundation on which many other technologies are built but the effects of technology on society have been both positive and negative. While technology has made it easier to connect with others, access information, and improving our lives but the downside of it affects us psychologically and physically. It has been linked to a decline in mental health, increased social division, and privacy concerns. Excessive use of digital technology changes human behaviour, isolation and low-value of human workers. Soon we will no longer experience "Real Life." Mr. Bremmer did not emphasized about the rise of Artificial Intelligence. Biggest techonological companies will become the next superpower. The future is coming, and sooner than we think. These emerging techno companies will change and control the way we live. Therefore the technology will rule the world in future. There is no denying it. So the big question is, do humans have control over technology? Or does technology control us in the future? The answer seems self-evident.

Regardless of where information comes from, scrolls, books, spoken words, words carried by radio waves or over the web, it is still the responsibility of the person receiving the information to determine the accuracy and the agenda of those providing the information. And that has not changed since the first human grunted a warning about the tiger hidden in the trees to his friend. If our civilization is at risk from high tech, it is so because humanity has abandoned the responsibility of discernment, of parsing the truth from the lies. We interpret the truth based on our own lusts, our own greed. It is this failure of morality on an individual bases, multiplied across the human population, that ensures our decline and eventual demise. Every religion and every philosophy of any value has this understanding at its core. But we keep looking for someone else to blame for our failure to live lives of value, morality, and compassion. It’s the devil, a talking snake, the government, our parents, or our economic class. The latest boogie man? Big tech. Elon is to blame for putting out the cool aid. It isn’t our fault we drank it. Thus it is being a member of a species of nearly hairless apes just recently climbed down from the trees.

This is one of the best presentations I've ever seen. It points out all of the world's problems that need to be answered. The presenter is right, the technology companies are the true rulers of the world order. These tech companies must be questioned and controlled by the entire world. Technology should only be created to serve human kind and not for human kind to become slaves to them. I knew back in 2007, the moment Steve Jobs presented the first iPhone, that the world was about to become doomed because of it's related technologies. The notable technology that human kind needs to fear are the Artificial Intelligence technologies. These tech companies THINK that they can control Ai, but they are dead wrong. Ai will destroy us all. Ai is now taking over half of our jobs. Eventually, humans will no longer have a purpose in life. Ai research must be stopped immediately if the human race is to survive.

As a computer scientist, I disagree to an extent. While technology has an overwhelming level of control over ideologies and politics, a technology company cannot function without electricity, headquarters, network, and servers. Now guess who has control over these resources, governments! I think the control of a tech company will have to align with the host country, which brings us back to the unipolar or bipolar world where a lot of compute resources were assigned to certain few countries from the start.

I thought I was crazy for so many years, this speech put principle economic, technological, and social issues to the forefront. My main concern is that we aren’t as frightened about total ecological collapse as we are of AI. Unless powerful tech can brute force environmental minimums and radical, long-term protection of these minimums, then we’re all pretty screwed. My concern is that people like Peter Thiel who influence much of the tech industry are climate denialists, and have never studied science in any capacity. I believe that they (tech “gurus”) are so detached from reality that their attempts at any form of universal autocratic dystopia will fail because there are insufficient resources and environmental sinks left to facilitate any more than the current rate of consumption. The tragedy is that these huge powers are built by sycophants that generally lack internalised morals, and believe they know everything because they can outsmart most other humans. Unfortunately for them, they will likely to run the human race into the ground for their insatiable and unhinged desire for total authority over our collective reality.

It's hard to say which injury we ought to fear most, when any one of them could prove lethal. The possibility of thermonuclear war, which occasionally terrified young people of my Cold War generation, has not yet been put to bed either. How is a fractured 'international community' going to ensure that climate targets are met, that A.I. will not be used for malign purposes? Where is the mechanism to control human behavior on so massive a scale? Beware those who seek to exercise such control, even in pursuit of praiseworthy, pro-social goals, when they cannot control themselves. So while I do not dispute the recently accumulated discoveries of climate scientists, I would not put much stock in the enlightened despotism of someone like Greta Thunberg. Btw she probably uses jet fuel when she travels to international conferences, whereas I stay in my own city year-round and use public transit. Thank God, it's all I can afford. The central problem from which our existential crises radiate is sinful human nature, and none of us are exempt from it. (Jeremiah 17:9) 'The heart is deceitful beyond all else, and is desperately sick' who can understand it?' Jesus, the only Man born without sin, said of times yet to come: (Mark 13:20) 'Unless the Lord had shortened those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days.' We are going to hit the wall at some point. Let us prepare by seeking the mercy of the Lord when it may be found.

Did not see that coming, but he is right on point. The solution has to be algorithms. They are the collective wisdom of the engineers who create them and the values that drive them. Algorithms to augment truth, create cooperative communication, and improve ideas and "values" are the solution. The professor in our UCI graduate seminars in the early 1980s worked on those solutions and algorithms. My new book on the subject is in the works, but first, I must get Pluvicopia, a prior book, off my shoulders. Please read it and advocate with those who can put Pluvicopia into action. Pluvicopia is more urgent, but truth augmentation algorithms are more important. Thanks.

You're right about the EU setting the rules. Every device needs to have a C-port, the world delivers. Smartphones must have batteries that anyone can take out of their phone: The world starts rethinking how to build smartphones to comply.
Even back in 1989, while India and China had huge portions of humanity, the United States encouraged the Chinese dictatorship and undermined Indian democracy.

In light of the ongoing global economic crisis, it is crucial for everyone to prioritize investing in diverse sources of income that are not reliant on the government. This includes exploring opportunities in stocks, gold, silver, and digital currencies. Despite the challenging economic situation, it remains a favorable time to consider these investments.

The pathway to substantial returns doesn't solely rely on stocks with significant movements. Instead, it revolves around effectively managing risk relative to reward. By appropriately sizing your positions and capitalizing on your advantage repeatedly, you can progressively work towards achieving your financial goals.

I think this is an incredibly important TED-talk. We should not rely on these powerful people being responsible, because power is passed from generation to generation and as with kings eventually it goes wrong. This needs to be regulated and proper institutions need to be build to competently do so. This is a new era and we should act like it. We need to all be ready to act on a moments notice and direct technology companies towards a better and more free future, instead of a tech dystopia. Otherwise just like we had the crazy hellhole after industrialization, we'll have an even worse hellhole today if we let this reign free. One we may not be able to protest our way out of, because our smartphones / other technologies and dependency on social media for personal connections will remove that option if we do not act early.
@Rithmy Hace 5 meses
I agree with you. I think we should rely on everyone in power being responsible, but jsut as you said it we should not hope for but demand it. Demanding it by setting up proper institutions and protocols. We need ethical tech companies. And my personal opinion on this is that i would try to heavily limit global advertizement and only allow for limited, descentralized, local, physical ads. We need to be able to critize ads. We need to be able to destroy certain content, we are able to act on a moments notice. And we need to finance technological growth without ads. The problem lies in how technology is interconnected with economic and military power. Thats why we need a global limit on this.

Primarily because I felt that no one had anything new to say, most were about pseudo-scientific thories about emotional intelligence, well-bieng, hyper-productivity, "high impact" bullshit, an so on. The really interesting TED talks remain to be mostly the old ones. Nonetheless this video appeared on my feed and thankfully, for some reason I felt drawn to this one to give it a shot. This is a really interesting way of analizing the world as we know it today and really important to think about the future we want to live in. I always recommend to friends and family to be cautious, aware and critical about the information they consume. Otherwise that information will determine how you live your life. I encourage you to be it too, we must remain in control of our lives for the sake of everyone. Peace!

Firstly, the prospect of unilateral American military domination seems increasingly unlikely. Just five months ago, the narrative suggested that Russia was on the losing side in the Ukraine conflict. However, the current situation is far less certain. The emergence of a military alliance comprising China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea could potentially reshape the global geopolitical landscape into two distinct military orders. This perspective differs from Ian Bremmer's viewpoint presented in his talk. Turning to digital companies, it's crucial to recognize their integral role in society. These companies are comprised of citizens from various nations, with a significant majority being U.S. citizens. It's important to note that these entities, despite their global reach, remain subject to the laws of their home countries. Legal violations can result in individuals associated with these companies facing imprisonment. Consequently, the idea that digital companies could autonomously dominate the world is improbable. They will invariably adhere to and comply with the regulatory frameworks imposed upon them.

I have a question for Ian: If one country has a monopoly on military power, would there be a great temptation for that country to monetize this monopoly? The country could do this by waging proxy war or simply use the threat of war to win concessions.
That has happened many times in the past. Take America for example.
The US has been the only real global military superpower since WW2. And since the collapse of the Soviet Union, everyone actually knows it. So the question is, to what extent has the US leveraged this milatary superiority to its economic advantage? At the very least, the US has used it to protect an unprecedented level of global free trade, arguably to the advantage of everybody. The degree to which the US has waged proxy wars or even direct wars for its own economic benefit is hotly contested. The flip side is to ask how much more the US could have or could yet take advantage of their position. I don't know. But when I compare the behavior of the US in its sphere of control against China and Russia in there's, I'm left routing for the status quo, especially as someone who lives in SEA at the intersection of those spheres. Sadly, change is always inevitable.

At long last we see somebody of Indian origin who is not afraid to call a spade a spade! Jayant Bandari is not bias! This guy speaks of what is really happening on the world economic and geopolitical arena in today global economic turmoil, with India trying to catch up with China which is years ahead in every sphere of development. He makes a true and vivid diagnosis of the present economic perspective and the real situation facing India to the effect that his native country will never become the next China! This 20 minutes interview by Blake Morris is a food for thought that must be seen by one and all. His economic analysis is totally opposite to what Indian Prime minister, Narendra Modi, has been saying day in day ou: that India is the next superpower of the world that will overtake China in less than a decade! When you take note of Modi's repetitive bullshit narrative and that of his bootlicker journalist of Vantage, Palki Sharma, and other Indian propaganda media, we cannot help asking ourselves whether the Indian illiterate masses are not being taken for a long ride since Modi comes to power a decade ago. Bandari underlines that between the government and weak infrastructure of India, most companies that want to move operations to India, end up not doing so because of rampant corruption at all level of the Indian society and the sluggishness of the Indian bureaucracy taking weeks to process a simple development certificate submitted by overseas companies!( Roland Tsang kwai kew 10.10.23)

Well spoken...the technology companies should be carefully monitored, and the data they collect should be publicly available...the actual fact that these companies are one step ahead in this new arena and the masses are being left behind. Knowledge is what makes us humans far superior to animals, we've used that knowledge to create and dominate them and consider this, technology companies with knowledge, financial capacity, and other resources to use to their advantage can control and manipulate us as they seem fit and we are helping them. We should remember companies like countries are systems and their (technology companies) habitat which is the internet is best known by them and therefore they have become powerful players or forces in the society and with the growth of the internet they become even more powerful just as with the growth of tribes or societies the leaders and the merchants became powerful and then become absolute monarchs that did as they wanted but let as learn from the past there may be change and evolution in our societies but fundamentally its the same point on the fractal pattern.

Yes, this talk goes to the heart of the conversation we are having in society! Do we want to stay with the "companies are here to make profits only, not owe any social value and goodwill to society" as Milton Friedman told us along with his cohort of economists. His group won the debate back in the 60's-70's (which looking back didn't seem hard to do), so here we are? This goes for tech companies AND the multi-nationals? If so, then these companies will have to form their own security operations to protect themselves from each other as they proceed? Also, start forming their own laws. These are the things we, society, give them to help make them successful. If they owe us nothing, then do we owe them anything?

Tech companies need two things, energy to power their servers and raw materials to manufacturer their chips, both of which are embeded in the economic system and consequently subject to the physical world constraints. A tech company may be able to hold out for a few years doing their own thing, but eventually they will have to succumb to the economic pressure brought to bear on them and align with the postion of their parent nation or fold. Simple as that. Bremmer is doing the typical tech niave thing of over estimating the power of the digital world because he thinks it's not embedded in the real physical world.
