Abstract: The survival of Ukraine as a sovereign state owes much to unforeseen effects of global tech markets for both capital and labor. It also raises some fascinating questions about the interplay between negative freedom (freedom from oppression) and positive freedom (the enabling of market actors to make decisions about the allocation of capital and labor). The talk and discussion will explore this interplay in an open-ended spirit. 

Note: You can attend this talk in-person or virtually though Zoom.
