My recent talk at New York Ideas on economic empowerment in the world today.

Thanks to the digital revolution, billions of people now have access to ideas, literature and entire academic curricula — much of it free of charge. We’re living in a time of unprecedented openness, where perfect strangers from different cultures, communities and countries can bond over shared goals and interests — ousting political dictators, supporting new ideas and influencing popular culture. That is the upside.

However, many people have been left out of these advances. We’re seeing a huge skills gap: a growing mismatch between the high-tech jobs being created and the unemployed youth moving through an educational system created in the agricultural age, not keeping up with the needs of today.
