Alec Ross served as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's senior advisor for innovation. During that role, he earned unique insight into the changing nature of technology. In his new book, "The Industries of the Future," Ross not only lays out the key industries that will shape the 21st century, but also provides the geopolitical, cultural and generational contexts out of which they are emerging. Berggruen Institute's Dawn Nakagawa sat down with Ross to discuss the book.
Have you noticed that the Democrats don't have anyone running for president now who is the 25-54 demographic so popular with TV advertising executives...
Labeling all of "us" a sexist mob like our beef with Hillary has to do more with her being a woman than our general fears about another moderate, left of center, establishment democrat in office isn't just unfair, it's a blinders-on-generalization to defend a flawed candidate.
Now Beijing wants to do for freedom of navigation in the South China Sea what it has long done for freedom of speech on mainland China: Suppress, deny, and obliterate it.
Bernie knows his promises of free college and single-payer healthcare, which he says can only happen if you join his revolution, won't happen. Maybe it's time you voted for your own interests as a woman.

If you are a Bernie supporter today, what you need is ammunition. Not to persuade your Democratic friends that Bernie is desirable -- that's another argument -- but to persuade them that he is electable.
The contrast between the Sanders' and the Clinton's reactions to the night tells the profound story. Where the Sanders are elated and humble, and seem as happy as ever to talk to their supporters and to Heilemann for his interview, the Clintons' abrupt departure without addressing or thanking their people beyond the minimum demanded by television coverage is striking.
The Netanyahu government's linking of national security to the so-called "defensive borders" is disingenuous and misleading, designed to provide a cover for his and his cabinet's continued intoxication with seizing Palestinian territories.
Tilting toward Mecca. "Thou doth protest too much." That's my reaction to President Barack Obama's visit to a mosque yesterday. There is no nationa...
Mr. Trump (and others) want to make an issue of Hillary and Bill's marriage due to Bill's marital indiscretions and her reactions to them. I want to make an issue of what matters: That they stayed together!
To me, the choice is clear. And the difference now between Hillary and Bernie's African American support is largely driven by a lack of information. Black people need to know more about Bernie and more about the Clintons' record.
Four Horsemen are running loose: War, Poverty, Racism and Climate Change. They may have other names, but these are how they appear to me in my political nightmares. And the riders are human. They're the ones leading us right now, behind the façade of democracy. Confronting them -- stopping them -- will take a movement independent of politics as usual, but not independent of the political process itself.
In her speech claiming victory after the Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton proclaimed herself "a progressive who gets things done." I had to laugh. And it wasn't just because former President Bill Clinton -- the centrist Triangulator-in-Chief -- was standing behind her, beaming and clapping.
As Senator Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton argue about who is a progressive, it illustrates that the American political class really doesn't understand the term.
