A letter to readers from the editor - Open Future explained
We have organised the conversation around five themes. Open Markets will examine the future of capitalism; Open Ideas will look at free speech; Open Society will discuss the balance between diversity, identity politics and political correctness; Open Borders will focus on immigration and Open Progress will consider whether technology is still a route to human progress. 

When James Wilson launched this newspaper in 1843, he said its mission was to “take part in a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress.” Open Future is the latest iteration of that mission. I encourage you to join the conversation. Please take part in our debates, vote in the polls, enter the essay contest and send us your comments at openfuture@economist.com.

European tech companies call on EU to toughen regulations | Financial Times
The letter, which was cosigned by Daniel Elk, chief executive of Spotify, and Hans-Holger Albrecht, chief executive of Deezer — accused US giants such as Google of becoming “gatekeepers to the digital economy” by using their dominant position to impose unfair terms on game developers and app makers.

Examples include Apple requiring downloads from its app store to use Apple’s own payment methods rather than other tools, such as PayPal.

EU competition and business ministers will meet in Brussels on Thursday. The EU’s 28 member states will have to agree on a version of the draft legislation, which will then be considered by the European Parliament and the European Commission before it can come into force.

The Open Future Festival and Steve Bannon - A statement from our Editor-in-Chief
Mr Bannon stands for a world view that is antithetical to the liberal values The Economist has always espoused. We asked him to take part because his populist nationalism is of grave consequence in today’s politics. He helped propel Donald Trump to the White House and he is advising the populist far-right in several European countries where they are close to power or in government. Worryingly large numbers of people are drawn to nativist nationalism. And Mr Bannon is one of its chief proponents.

The future of open societies will not be secured by like-minded people speaking to each other in an echo chamber, but by subjecting ideas and individuals from all sides to rigorous questioning and debate. This will expose bigotry and prejudice, just as it will reaffirm and refresh liberalism. That is the premise The Economist was founded on. When James Wilson launched this newspaper in 1843, he said its mission was to take part in “a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress.” Those words have guided us for 175 years. They will guide our debates at the Open Future festival on September 15th. That is why our invitation to Mr Bannon will stand.

Amazon Said to Plan Up to 3,000 Cashierless Stores by 2021 - Bloomberg
Amazon.com Inc. is considering a plan to open as many as 3,000 new AmazonGo cashierless stores in the next few years, according to people familiar with matter, an aggressive and costly expansion that would threaten convenience chains like 7-Eleven Inc., quick-service sandwich shops like Subway and Panera Bread, and mom-and-pop pizzerias and taco trucks.

Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos sees eliminating meal-time logjams in busy cities as the best way for Amazon to reinvent the brick-and-mortar shopping experience, where most spending still occurs. But he’s still experimenting with the best format: a convenience store that sells fresh prepared foods as well as a limited grocery selection similar to 7-Eleven franchises, or a place to simply pick up a quick bite to eat for people in a rush, similar to the U.K.-based chain Pret a Manger, one of the people said.
