It’s an exciting moment – the advance copies of Dave Birch’s book, Identity is the New Money, have arrived here at Enlightenment Economics Towers.
OK, as series editor, I’m biased, but this is an exciting book. Dave’s one-man expertise on the technological issues involved in both identity security and digital money have converged in an absolutely illuminating and highly entertaining read. He argues that there is no trade-off between our financial/data security and our privacy; the marriage of mobiles and social networks means we can have both. As the infrastructure is put in place, cash use will evaporate – and a good thing too, in his view.
It’s available for pre-order on Amazon and will be shipping soon!
