AZEEM AZHAR

Ideas

Azeem argues that we are moving into the Exponential Age, a period where accelerating technologies will refashion our political economies. As these changes occur, our economic, political and cultural institutions will need to adapt – but will struggle to do so. The result is the ‘exponential gap’, a chasm that must be closed for inclusive and equitable progress.
