Data has become a big business.
Data brokerage – the buying and selling of our data – is estimated to be a $ 200 billion industry.

I’m old enough to remember when polio ripped through the globe and put my six-year-old friends into iron lungs.
We dutifully lined up at school to get polio shots (without the howling of governors or anti-vaxxers). And we eradicated polio.
Why has saving lives become political?
