Manufacturing Consent: The Modern Pandemic of Technosolutionism
If only we knew more about the world that we live in. If only we understood that all things are interconnected. If only we could learn to value ethics above rank profiteering.

We are living that reality today.
IEEE Transactions on Technology and Society is a quarterlyonline only publication. The publication accepts submissions on a rolling basis. The Transactions publishes annually in March, June, September and December.

The key question for the future is that with all the investment in new technologies, by both governments and business organizations, can regulation keep up with developments?
The word “regulation” has been demonized by those who back an unfettered world of sink-or-swim markets. Yet the need for order – not to mention the defense of the defenseless – is essential to a free and functioning society.
