GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 6th November at noon SLT: Will the future World Government be a World Company?

Is it possible that one company will suck up all the money and resources of the planet and eventually grow into a world government?  Some countries, like China, are run like companies now.  Could such a country win against an international conglomerate?  Will we be ruled by China or Tesla?

What will the world be like if it is run by a company?  Remember Adam Smith said that rule by company was “perhaps the worst of all governments for any country whatever.”

For those who have read Dune, are we facing something like the galaxy-sized company called Choam?

Or will even future megacorporations get disrupted by some guys tinkering in a garage?

Get out of your garage, bring your friends and discuss your future as an employee of Company X!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at 1pm SLT in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
