Synopsis

A timely call to reshape government through technology, from Nandan Nilekani and Viral Shah, two leading experts in the field.For many aspects of how our countries are run - from social security and fair elections to communication, infrastructure and the rule of law - technology can play an increasingly positive, revolutionary role. In India, for example, where many underprivileged citizens are invisible to the state, a unique national identity system is being implemented for the first time, which will help strengthen social security. And throughout the world, technology is essential in the transition to clean energy.This book, based on the authors' collective experiences working with government, argues that technology can reshape our lives, in both the developing and developed world, and shows how this can be achieved.Praise for Nandan Nilekani:'A pioneer . . . one of India's most celebrated technology entrepreneurs' Financial Times'There is a bracing optimism about Nilekani's analysis . . . which can only be welcome in this age of doom and gloom' Telegraph'The Bill Gates of Bangalore . . .
