To compete and thrive in the 21st century, democracies, and the United States in particular, must develop new national security and economic strategies that address the geopolitics of information. In the 20th century, market capitalist democracies geared infrastructure, energy, trade, and even social policy to protect and advance that era’s key source of power—manufacturing. In this century, democracies must better account for information geopolitics across all dimensions of domestic policy and national strategy.
Alex Wellerstein will present an MTA seminar, entitled "Why You Can't Patent an Atomic Bomb: Nuclear Weapons as Intellectual Property" on Tuesday, June 15 at 12:15pm in the Belfer Center library.
All are welcome and invited to attend.
