Jared Cohen on the New Digital Age

Jared Cohen, the director of Google Ideas and a former adviser to secretaries of state Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton, takes on some of the toughest questions about our future: Who will be more powerful in the future, the citizen or the state? Will technology make terrorism easier or harder to carry out? What is the relationship between privacy and security, and how much will we have to give up to be part of the new digital age? In The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business, he and Eric Schmidt outline the promise and peril awaiting us in the coming decades.
