ferensteinThe Age of Optimists: A Quantitative Glimpse of How Silicon Valley Will Transform Political Power and Everyday Life
By Greg Ferenstein

In his new book, The Age of Optimists: A quantitative glimpse of how Silicon Valley will transform political power and everyday life, Ferenstein takes a closer look at how these two disciplines merge in the American tech hub that is experiencing greater influence and wealth than ever before. Ferenstein illustrates how tech founders, somewhat dissimilarly, see government as both a tool for good and an impediment to innovation and growth.
