Lecture at Wesleyan

On Monday I gave a public lecture at Wesleyan University about Collateral Knowledge. The audience was mainly humanists and critical theorists and the presentation was geared toward what the book might have to say to those audiences rather than to lawyers or regulators  Video of the event:

What can each of us do to stabilize the markets?

An upcoming conference sponsored by the Cornell Law School and the Center for Global Partnership explores the role of professionals and professionalism in bringing about market stability. The idea is to create a “market movement” on par with political and social movements, to bring about market change from the ground up. What role can each of us play? Is there an alternative to waiting for the government to fix our markets on the one hand, or having blind faith in free-market greed on the other?
