About the Event

Description: Our current economic and political systems are failing us, leading to levels of income inequality not seen since the Gilded Age and the rise of populist leaders. Radical Markets proposes revolutionary ideas on how to use markets to bring about fairness and prosperity for all.
Intent of Session: There are two ways to interpret this book: 1) a series of explicit proposals for political/economic reform or 2) political philosophy meant to turn assumptions on their heads. I would like to approach this session from the second perspective. Some of the proposals are wayyy out there, and we could spend the entire session listing all the reasons why they won’t work. I would much rather spend the time talking about the underlying principle of the idea and how that speaks to us.
