Cold War 2.0: Technology & Geopolitics”

G eorge S. Takach’s new book, Cold War 2.0, comes out in March, 2024. George’s presentation to CIC Vancouver Island one month later will discuss key themes of the book: what it means for the democracies and the autocracies to be in a cold war, especially one that is technologically driven; why democracies do technology and innovation better than autocracies; and suggestions about what democracies have to do to leverage their edge in technology and innovation to prevail in Cold War 2.0.

G eorge Takach is a graduate of the University of Toronto (including IEP, Aix-en-Provence) (BA), the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (MA), and the Faculty of Law University of Toronto (JD). George is a former partner and national Technology Industry Leader at the McCarthy Tétrault law firm, where for more than 35 years he represented Canadian and international technology companies and traditional companies and governments with their sophisticated technology transactions and projects. George was an Adjunct Professor of computer law at Osgoode Hall Law School for 22 years. He is the author of Computer Law and two other books on the business of technology.
