UN2045: Building a Trustworthy Economy

Today’s financial systems are not trusted by citizens because they are inherently unstable and winner-take-all, so for most people the system offers only failure.  Today, new digital technologies allow the fine-grain feedback needed to build systems that are dramatically more stable, which reward everyone’s contribution to society, and provide everyone with a realistic opportunity to build a good life.

Professor Alex Pentland, Faculty Founding Director of MIT Connection Science, Mentor of AI World Society Innovation Network (, and a co-author of the Social Contract 2020, has conceived the “Trustworthy Economy”, based on data science, digital technologies and AI. This is very meaningful for the UN 2045 Initiative.
