Global Technology Regulation

Tuesday, July 3, 2007

From James Hughes (et.al) new book:

The regulation of the threats of potentially apocalyptic technologies thus requires not only that the safety of emerging technologies be addressed by transnational agreements, but that these agreements create and support agencies capable of engaging in surveillance and verification at both the national and transnational level, with triggers for compelling enforcement mechanisms, from economic sanctions to military force.
What we need then, is a political globalization, and this is not occurring yet. Economy and Technology is becoming global but politics remained local.
