Tech for good is a relatively new movement where companies develop technological solutions to take on big societal or environmental problems. They do this to improve their image in the eyes of their consumers but also under the notion that making a profit and doing social good is not necessarily mutually exclusive. But is that last part true? What happens when private companies become the drivers of social change? That is the question we are asking in this DIIS podcast, when we travel to Brazil and Paraguay to learn how so-called fintech companies have given poor people access to credit cards and life insurances that were once unobtainable to them. All they must do is give up extensive amounts of very private data about spending patterns and family relations. Guests: Caroline Schuster, Associate Professor in economic anthropology at the National University of Australia, Marie Kolling, Senior Researcher at DIIS. Manuschript, host and editing: Anne Blaabjerg Nielsen We have used clips from: Nubank and CGTN America
