Summary "With digital automation becoming ubiquitous, the relationship between man and machine is being redefined. This book, through a focus on America, identifies the tension this relationship has produced, and how it has divided America socially, politically, and economically, ultimately breeding two fundamentally incompatible nations within one: the 'forgotten America' and 'elite America'. This book enables the reader to visualise the changes brought by automation on our producer and buyer identities, and suggests policy changes that global leaders could adopt to deal with the increasing discord. The book is heavily dependent on a few fundamental concepts of both economics and sociology, such as globalisation, labour economics, and cultural homogenisation. The book is ideally suited to students and academics researching political economics and sociology, with focuses on globalisation, unemployment, and the social impacts of technological advances"-- Provided by publisher.
