Ep.#006 - The Role of Technology in the African past and present ft Thomas Lesaffre - Part 1 The 4th Generation Podcast

    • Politics

In this age of "planetary entanglement" and  "technological escalation", where "innovation has become the norm";


Does technology inherently lead to better outcomes? Are we to be techno-optimists or techno-pessimists?
Is Technology neutral? What (whose) agenda does innovation follow? To what (whose) needs do new technologies cater?
What role has technology played in the colonization and exploitation of Africa?
In light of the digitalization of finance, how do we perceive the role of technology in the financialization of the poor?

In Part 1 of this episode, I am joined by my politics and governance teacher Mr. Thomas Lesaffre in an attempt to answer the afore-stated questions. Mr. Thomas' Ph.D. thesis is centered on the "digitalization of finance."

The closing song is 13 We are also praying / Julius Nyerere by Didier Awadi
