Technology has become the largest industry in the world. In this episode of Anti-Capitalist Chronicles, Prof. Harvey picks up where he left off from the previous episode to further explore the implications of technology as a business. To do this, Harvey looks closely at Apple as an example—the labor conditions in China, where the product value actually comes from, and the differences in profit rates between the company itself and the production companies further down the supply chain. As the tech sector continues to explode, Harvey begs us to investigate the ways in which it shapes our lives and choices: through concealed exploitative practices, monetization of access, artificial intelligence, and more.

    Hi. Attended this event, thanks to the professor for the sensible tips, I took advantage of them and they came in handy. I later decided to move my business to a bigger city where the factors are more conducive to its development. Transload warehouse https://pnwwarehousing.com/transload.html, a relocation service, helped with the move. Next, on arrival, when everything was delivered, I started to think about how to start from scratch. Perhaps someone has had a similar experience and you can share it?
