The Human Advantage: The Future of American Work in an Age of Smart Machines
Jay Richards, Ph.D., O.P., is an Assistant Research Professor in the School of Business and Economics at The Catholic University of America, Executive Editor of The Stream and a Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute where he works with the Center on Wealth, Poverty, and Morality. He is author of many books including the New York Times bestsellers Infiltrated (2013) and Indivisible (2012), as well as Money, Greed, and God (winner of a 2010 Templeton Enterprise Award), and The Hobbit Party: The Vision of Freedom that J.R.R. Tolkien Got and the West Forgot, which he co-authored with Jonathan Witt. His latest book, The Human Advantage: The Future of American Work in an Age of Smart Machines, argues we need a new model for how ordinary people can thrive in this age of mass economic disruption. Richards dispatches myths about capitalism, greed, and upward mobility and tells the stories of how real individuals have begun to rebuild a culture of virtue through creativity, resilience, and empathy.
