FBL82: Orly Lobel - The Equality Machine & Techno-optimism
Manage episode 348938865 series 3410203
This week our guest is law professor, author, and distinguished speaker, Orly Lobel, who recently published her latest of three books, The Equality Machine: Harnessing Digital Technology for a Brighter, More Inclusive Future.
In this episode we explore the thread that weaves through Orly’s work, which often emphasizes the way economic markets, technology, and the human condition interact. Specifically, we take a deep dive into the limitations and future of intellectual property and monopolies; the way in which cynicism and unrealistic standards hold us back from seeing and implementing humanistic technological solutions; the way in which technology could bring more equality to our societies, and much more.
