    (Knowledge and Power) [Kindle] Ð George Gilder This is a hard book to review because it seems to be two books at once The first book wishes to define explain and demonstrate how Information Theory works and may be applied to economics moving forward The author appears to recognize Market FundamentalismThe Austrian School is a broken tool and that something new is needed Mr Gild

    (Knowledge and Power) [Kindle] Ð George Gilder The fundamental worldview that governs this book is seriously misguided but given the amount of influence the Discovery Institute played in its creation I'm not terribly surprisedNevertheless the dubiousness of Gilder's underlying metaphysics does not constitute a rebuttal against his specific claims which pose a variation of the c

    (Knowledge and Power) [Kindle] Ð George Gilder This book had a promising start Gilder's premise is that entrepreneurial creativity is responsible for 80% of all growth in a functioning capitalist economy However he doesn't do the work of proving that theory which would have been interesting Instead he tries to shoehorn the whole of economics into information theory The carrier is the government regulatory and social structure that carries the information namely the creation

A caveat my review is based on only a partial reading of the book Wasn t worth finishingI went into this book looking forward to Gilder s ideas about the relationship between information and economics Having read some of his stuff in the 90s I was usually impressed by his straddling of the worlds of economics and high tech The idea that the surprise of innovation drives economic growth which is the main message of the book was one that on the surface resonated with meHowever this book was a disappointment I suppose the Rush Limbaugh endorsement on the back cover should have been a warning Not because of the ideas because I like to have my assumptions uestioned but because the level of discourse in the book seemed closer to talk radio than an intellectual discussion He takes Claude Shannon s work and terminology regarding information and applies it to economics but IMHO it felt very forcedIn this book Gilder does a lot of hand waving and name dropping of people of tech and of scientific theories and too often feels the need to toss in tidbits about what a smart guy he is It felt like he had a worldview that he was fitting a theory into and not vice versa In short this book read like something from a policy wonk and a economistAs a counter example Nicholas Nassim Taleb is wildly self confident and totally obnoxious at times but I find that his writing focuses on his ideas and theories getting into them deeply enough that you can follow a trail if you are interested in uestioning his ideas

One or two strong ideas were entirely spoiled by what I can only describe as a massive avalanche of partisan bullshtGilders core new insight is that capitalism is very similar to data transmission The infrastructure government regulation monetary policy playing the roll of the wire and the actual execution innovation and well business playing the roll of the data It s actually a pretty good idea but he seems to have confused a useful metaphor one that can provide hints on how things might work and what choices should be made for an actual exact mechanism one that dictates policy absolutelyA second strong idea though I suspect not a new one for him Is that the massive wealth imbalance isn t actually so horrible because almost all of that wealth is invested It s not as if bill gates is sitting on hundreds of billions of bags of rice and we are all starving His wealth is of a representation of his earned power in guiding an company and through that an economy It s not a flawless idea but it s one with some meritThe absurdities however aboundGilder makes it clear that though he loves both technology and engineering he thinks that all pure research outside of information theory is entirely wasted He seems oblivious to the fact that most of the technology he so loves is enabled by discoveries coming from pure research often within his lifetime He is dramatically and vehemently anti science than any author I have read to date casually dismissing any and every claim that he dislikes regardless of the level of consensus regarding it This came to an absolute absurdity when in chapter 7 he literally and specifically calls out and denies the second law of thermodynamics I don t mean to say he says something that would violate the second law of thermodynamics but rather that he says The second law of thermodynamics is bunk and does not exists His casual dismissal of any science he disagrees with is made all the frustrating by his inclusion of any science that happens to support the policies or opinions that he likes or for that matter that he can misinterpret as such The book is coated in a thick veneer of scientism that just about anyone with a scienceengineering background will see for what it is He has several assumptions that guide much or most of his thought throughout the book which he doesn t bother to defend at all These range from uite explicit Gilder believes global warming is patently false in every way and possibly some sort of left wing conspiracy to the implicit The growth of the economy is the greatest and possibly the only good Because people act in it freely all other needs are satisfactorily addressed by it to the subtle God is the source of all good creations all wealth comes from a special divine spark in individual heroic entrepreneursPerhaps frustrating than his dubious ground rule assumptions are his policy suggestions which are always straight down the line US republican even when that is not the only outcome of his economic model and in one case when they actively disagree with it The non seuitur of this sort are both baffling and infuriating He freuently uotes other popular economics and science books about 34s of which I have read I can say that for the first 23rds of the book he appears to have miss understood most of what he has read though I can only be sure regarding the books where we have overlap and with the strong exception being the book the information which he seems to have understood uite well In the last 13 of the book he casually reviews several other books and states his points of agreement and disagreement Interestingly in this section he seems to have much stronger comprehension of the books he is siting with thoughtful and reasonably coherent disagreements In short I feel like with this book Gilder has completely discredited himself as a rational and coherent thinker Read at your own risk
