FULFILLMENT:  Winning & Losing in One-Click America

Alec MacGillis will speak to his book, FULFILLMENT: Winning & Losing in One-Click America, and describe it as being about the country’s growing disparities between winner-take-all cities like Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, New York and Washington, D.C., on the one hand, and the much larger group of cities and towns that are being left behind in an economy dominated by a handful of tech giants. The book tells this story of growing disparity through the frame of Amazon, and it includes a chapter on Dayton’s transformation from a hub of manufacturing innovation to a city that is increasingly given over to the logistics industry. He will speak to the nationwide context of the book but will end up focusing a fair amount on Dayton..
