EASTASN 279: Rebalancing Economic Systems in a World Driven by Tech: Quality-of-Life in Socio-Cultural Context (EASTASN 179)

This course examines the broader consequences of economic models that rely on innovation-driven growth, e.g. increases in social inequality, tension between globalism and isolationism, and tendencies toward authoritarianism. After an overview of the historical outcomes of previous industrial revolutions, we examine how the above trends are exacerbated in the era of digital transformation, comparing different economic systems (e.g. China, India, Japan, and the U.S.) as realized in their socio-political and cultural contexts. We then discuss approaches toward rebalancing existing systems, including metrics for evaluating economic performance and its impact, in order to satisfy the imperatives of social, environmental, and economic sustainability.
