About the Event

Join us for a book launch featuring Tom Wheeler,  former chairman of the Federal Communication Corporation (FCC) during  the Obama administration, who will be launching his  new book TECHLASH: Who Makes the Rules in the Digital Gilded Age, (Brookings, October 15, 2023). Wheeler will be introduced by Congressman Don Beyer.

In TECHLASH: Who Makes the Rules in the Digital Gilded Age (Wheeler connects the experiences of the late 19th century’s industrial  Gilded Age with its echoes in the 21st century digital Gilded Age. In  both cases, technology innovation and the great wealth that it created  ran up against the public interest and the rights of others. As with the  industrial revolution and the Gilded Age that it created, new digital  technology has changed commerce and culture, creating great wealth in  the process, all while being essentially unsupervised.
