The reviewed book describes the transformation of industrial capitalism into digital, facilitated by big data and developed IT. The author argues that the global market economic situation is what leads to transformation. The book gives us an idea on platform evolution, starting with analyzing the reasons for them emerging, continuing on to the typologies of modern platforms while highlighting their economic strengths and weaknesses, until finally predicting future wars between economic platforms, certain manifestations are already apparent in our time, according to the author. This work might be of use to those who want to know about the typology of various electronic-information platforms established based on their respective means for generating profit. The author defines labor market changes conditioned by an increase in unemployment and life expectancy, during a time when people are working closely with IT infrastructure, based on the example of the USA and other countries dealing with a similar social-economic situation.
