David Friedman Interviewed on Liberty Watch

August 27, 2008

David D. Friedman has a resume that will make your head spin, but at its nexus are Law, Economics, and Technology. Liberty Watch Radio interviewed him on August 24, discussing his latest project, Future Imperfect, which steps forward to examine the many possible implications of the astounding pace of technology.

As a Libertarian, Friedman’s scenarios square off for mechanisms that will allow personal freedom to thrive in the face of the crazy implications of, say, robot surveillance flies or identity theft.

It’s another long interview, but a really intriguing one.
