    Invisible Hand, Regulation or Self-Governance – A Trilemma

    While technology is seen to offer a rare opportunity to address intractable problems, it is also seen as replacing jobs and in the long run (once the point of Singularity is crossed) acting on its own potentially to the detriment of humankind.  What is perhaps missing is the discussion on how we could minimise the adverse impact of expeditious innovation, particularly in healthcare, education, and finance.
