Around the world, liberal democracies are in crisisCitizens have lost faith in their government; right-wing nationalist movements frame the political debateAt the same time, economic inequality is increasing dramatically; digital technologies have created a new class of super-rich entrepreneursAutomation threatens to transform the free economy into a zero-sum game in which capital wins and labour losesBut is this digital dystopia inevitable? In his book Cyber Republic, George Zarkadakis presents an alternative, outlining a plan for using technology to make liberal democracies more inclusive and the digital economy more equitableCyber Republic is no less than a guide for the coming Fourth Industrial Revolution and the post-pandemic world

Zarkadakis, an expert on technology and management, explains how artificial intelligence, together with intelligent robotics, sophisticated sensors, communication networks, and big data, will fundamentally reshape the global economy; a new "intelligent machine age" will force us to adopt new forms of economic and political organizationHe envisions a future liberal democracy in which intelligent machines facilitate citizen assemblies, helping to extend citizen rights, and blockchains and crypto-economics enable new forms of democratic governance and business collaborationMoreover, the same technologies can be applied to scientific research and technological innovationWe need not fear automation, Zarkadakis argues; in a post-work future, intelligent machines can collaborate with humans to achieve the human goals of inclusivity and equality
