Luckily technology has the ability to revolutionize things in spite of government, and one of the most exciting developments have been happening with the blockchain. Mises Weekends this week features one of the true leaders in the industry, Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne. Byrne, who will be speaking at our event in San Diego later this month, spoke at our Austrian Economics Research Conference in 2015 on how blockchain can change the world (and eliminate much of Wall Street in the process). As countries like the Republic of Georgia take steps to utilize this technology to handle land titles, we are witnessing Byrne’s vision become reality.
The Mises Institute works to advance the Austrian School of economics and the Misesian tradition, and defends the market economy, private property, sound money, and peaceful international relations, while opposing state intervention.
