Richard Walker, Professor Emeritus of Geography at the University of California, Berkeley, discusses his new book, Pictures of a Gone City: Tech and the Dark Side of Prosperity in the San Francisco Bay Area with journalist Chris Hedges. The book reveals Silicon Valley’s tech giant elitism, its role as a symbol of new capitalism, and the dark world of underpaid workers who lack security and rising homelessness.
