Journalist & science writer Leigh Phillips (Nature, Scientific American, New Scientist, Guardian, Telegraph) joins us for a presentation and discussion about how advancements in technology can enable democratic planning and decision making at vast scales.

Leigh will present key themes from his new book with Michal Rozworski: "The People’s Republic of Walmart: How the World’s Biggest Corporations are Laying the Foundation for Socialism" and we'll discuss ways that automation and emerging technologies can be leveraged in government to promote economic equality and social justice.

We will schedule the meetup for later in 2021, or as soon as we're able to meet safely in person.
