Philly Blockchain Tech, in conjunction with the Philadelphia Ethereum Meetup, is excited to welcome Glen Weyl to discuss "Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society".

Glen is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research New England. His work aims to use technology and economics to find new ways to organize societies to reduce inequality, increase productivity and ease political tensions. Amongst numerous other publications, he is the co-author of "Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society." Recently, Glen has been collaborating with the Ethereum Foundation to build Radical Markets into the Ethereum blockchain.

Pizza and drinks will be served at 6:00 PM. The presentation will commence at 6:30 PM, followed by group discussion and social time. Special thanks to Industrious Philadelphia for hosting this month's event and to Jay Rush, for suggesting this cross-meetup collaboration.

Please help spread the word about this meetup! While Philly Blockchain Tech aims to focus on the technical and entrepreneurial aspects of blockchain, all background and experience levels are welcome.
