ICLE Affiliate Thibault Schrepel Discusses Blockchain, Free Markets, and Antitrust Laws on Competition Lore Podcast
In a tripartite conversation between Glen Weyl, Caron Beaton-Wells, and ICLE affiliate, Thibault Schrepel. We discussed blockchain, but also, free markets, state power and the (absence of) need for antitrust laws. Description taken from the Competition Lore podcast below:
In this final (for now) episode in our series on blockchain, we move beyond the economic and legal analysis to consider whether this technology might inform and be part of a broader movement for political and social change.
We are joined by Glen Weyl, founder and Chairman of the RadicalxChange Foundation, Principal Researcher at Microsoft and Visiting Research Scholar at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
In a highly thought provoking discussion, co-hosted with Dr Thibault Schrepel (our guest on episodes 23 and 24), Glen explains some of the core ideas in his writing and relates them to his critique of the current state of the blockchain industry.
