The lopsided distribution of technology benefits is a known fact, but regulators are flummoxed with how to deal with the problem
In a past column, I touched upon what has come to be known as the ‘digital divide’ between the haves and the have-nots and suggested that it may be time for a supra-national body similar to the World Health Organization to be constituted to help govern the world of technology. My argument is that, to some degree at least, technology is a public good, just as basic health is, and its benefits need to be shared across a larger swathe of the world’s population.
