Jeffersonian Economic Architecture in the Digital Age
By: Robert S. Ellinger Ph.D.
About the Book
Jeffersonian Economic Architecture in the Digital Age is a book focused on how to synergically adapt to the catastrophic change in culture that humanity is currently undergoing. This is due to seismic change in technology at the dawn of the Digital Age. The author Robert S. Ellinger Ph.D. has created an architectural model using concepts from a variety of academic disciplines including spatial economics, history, systems engineering, information technology, enterprise architecture, and political science. He uses this model to demonstrate how humanity adapted to technology change in the past. He then transforms this model for the future Digital Age. And he does this while keeping Jefferson’s and other founding father’s concept of equal opportunity for all as envisioned in the US Declaration of Independence and Preamble of the US Constitution.
