Key thrust of his argument is that a 21st century information tsunami
The key thrust of his argument is that a 21st century information tsunami has changed how media is consumed in our society. Rather than filtered through traditional media outlets, Internet and social media information is now the domain of everyone – both accurate and fake news.

Listen to the EconTalk podcast where host Russ Roberts interviews Martin Gurri and answer the following questions in essay form:

  1. What are the main points of Gurri’s arguments regarding information and traditional political and social hierarchies? Elaborate beyond my brief summary above.
  2. What examples does Gurri offer in support of his thesis? Be specific here and flesh them beyond what he says in the podcast.
  3. We’ve talked a lot about trust. How does the information tsunami hurt or help our trust in each other and in our institutions?
  4. What does the future look like, using Gurri’s thesis?
  5. What other points that Gurri makes (or Roberts) intrigues you? Why?

This is not a time for political rants. Remember, the purpose of these essays is to help you develop the ability to discern nuance and understand the complexity of political events and movements. My expectations are high.

Be sure to cite the podcast using timestamps: (EconTalk 16:34), for example. Also, you will still need an outside source. Perhaps seek out something else Gurri has written?

And of course, remember the minimums and assignment requirements!
