On January 4th, the 5th New Economic Think Tank Congress, organized by the Ali Institute, was held in Beijing, attended and lectured by George Gilder, a prominent American economist and futurist. In his keynote speech, The Post-Computing Era, George Gilder says Google has built a world system whose singleness will leave humanity far behind.
And in China, a new type of platform company has emerged that empowers customers, helps its customers and even its competitors to create a new future world system and economic identity.
George Gilder says one of the reasons why China has more new and entrepreneurial companies than any other country combined is that it has achieved great success in entrepreneurship precisely because of platform companies such as Alibaba and Tencent, which create a lot of opportunities for small businesses. By 2023, the world’s biggest companies will be Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu and ByteDance and Ping An. In addition, we see a lot of blockchain companies, in the future this era will be very fierce competition, there will be a lot of blockchain enterprises rise, and now we have entered the blockchain era.
George Gilder believes that the crisis of world economic network security, Internet hacking and attacks continue to occur, people’s mutual trust is declining, in order to restore confidence in the world economy, we must develop blockchain.
