The Inflated Age
When Amazon, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Uber, Airbnb, or any other company subsidizing its services with other businesses or Series D+ investment begin to tighten their grip, what does America look like? What will that future look like for communities and people throughout the country and world?
What does it mean when these monopolies, subsidizing rides from foreign money in a winner-takes-all market, or cross-subsidizing businesses to destroy market competition fulfill their end? How do we untether ourselves from the organizations that operated in inflated circumstances? How do we take the hooks out of our brains and pockets?
I think it's worth imagining the inflated end and moving backwards.
