Douglas Rushkoff is a media theorist, onetime cyberpunk, cyberculture expert and the bestselling author of a dozen books on media, technology and culture, including his latest, “Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus.” He’s also a documentarian, novelist, graphic novelist and a Professor of Digital Economics at CUNY/Queens.

In this interview with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur, Rushkoff discusses how modern corporations’ focus on growth over profits is rapidly destroying society, why companies are actively discouraged from becoming profitable, the ponzi scheme that has become the global corporate marketplace, and possible solutions moving forward to keep corporatism from eating itself – and us in the process.
