Join economist, social technologist and RadicalXChange founder Glen Weyl and Interintellect co-hosts Alaka Halder and Wes Chow for this special members-only salon!
Glen Weyl is a rare force in academia, public discourse, and movement building. One of the world’s foremost political economists, he co-invented groundbreaking systems such as quadratic voting to help societies make better collective decisions, fund public projects, and solve economic inequality and stagnation. These concerns and solutions are explored in his book Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society. Published in 2018, the book provided the impetus behind Weyl’s creation of RadicalXChange (RxC), a global movement that unites artists, activists, technologists, researchers, and the general public to advance “plurality, equality, community, and decentralization through upgrades of democracy, markets, the data economy, the commons, and identity.” Weyl is also a leading voice on data dignity, the blockchain, antitrust and regulation in the digital sector, and the future of academic research.
