The rise of populism and increasing inequality have led to widespread questioning of democracy and capitalism. Glen Weyl is a political economist and Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research.
Along with legal scholar Eric Posner, he published a book called Radical Markets. The book explores not only how the restructuring of property rights and voting systems but also the change from advertising to AI could lead to more efficient markets and a more just society.
It also highlights why the blockchain space is a fertile testbed to explore these new ideas.
Glen is teaching a course on the book at Princeton University as a Visiting Research Scholar and Lecturer. He has founded the RadicalxChange movement to bring together entrepreneurs, communicators, activists, and researchers committed to using market mechanism to create a radically more just society. He has consulted for a range of companies (especially in the blockchain space), for several governments and collaborated with artists and designers.
