“Around the world, the race is on between a communications revolution that empowers the individual and a data revolution designed to protect the state. This contest will play out in different countries in different ways…We can’t yet know how this race will end, but it is a mistake to assume the state can’t hold its own for years to come.”
- Ian Bremmer. Author and President of Eurasia Group, a global political risk research and consulting firm.
