Caroline Atkinson, Head of Global Policy at Google
As globalization has come under fire, so have the companies that represent the ultimate borderless terrain — the internet. Cool new technologies, and the companies that make them, are still favorites with consumers. But politicians, governments and commentators are increasingly questioning the role of digital technology companies in society — and blaming the internet for a range of ills. How do these concerns square with the view from inside, and with the promise of innovations that can improve our lives? How can governments regulate successfully as innovation races forward?
