    This thesis examines the moral political economy of technology and well-being. This is be done assessing Finnish policymaking in the context of global political economy, using a moral political economy approach and critical semiotic analysis. The material of the thesis consists of a recent government resolution on technology policy. The objective is to critically explore the normative foundation of technology policymaking and to identify underlying moral-political norms. The findings suggest that underlying moral-political norms relating to ideals of welfare and technology, as well as neoliberal economic understanding are identifiable within the resolution. This further suggests, that policymaking related to technology and well-being reproduces existing power structures. The findings suggest further research is needed to engage in moral political economy in the context of digitalising world economy.
