Description

It is evident that technology has changed life in many ways. The future of the world’s economy, social, and political landscapes is entangled with the emerging influence of technology. It is therefore evident that I will be living in a very different world soon when it comes to social organisation and the economy because the future of the economy will be majorly dependent on the emerging technology (New Networks and Changing Communities). The media and communication will play a critical role in the future world because they will continue to impact on how I understand social, economic, and political issues.
