Prof. Suarez-Villa’s past work has involved the concept of technocapitalism, a new version of capitalism that has potentially major systemic implications for human existence, existence and nature, along with the economy.

These new sectors depend essentially on creativeness and research, almost as much ast the commercial sectors which were a hallmark from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries relied on production, recycleables and factory labor.
