Retweeted by Tim O'ReillySuper excited by @rmchase webcast about strategies for building a collaborative economy company Weds Oct 13 9 am PT@Chaos2Night It’s not just regulatory capture. It’s the fundamental bias in the tax system, which I was so glad to see addressed by Stiglitz@Chaos2Night The rules are so tilted towards capital that if you just have less government, you get more kleptocracy. Need different govt@Chaos2Night The problem is that most people who want less do it so thoughtlessly that they are actually asking for more of the wrong kind@Chaos2Night The problem is that you can’t have less steering in the abstract. You have to undo a lot of very specific steering.@Chaos2Night There are going to be rules. We need a strong debate on which ones we are going to live by. And that starts with questions.@Chaos2Night A lot of people don’t notice how much of “the market” is driven by a set of rules they don’t understand.@Chaos2Night I think you miss the point. Not that gov can steer the economy, but that it is NOW steering it, and steering it wrong.Awesome @EconTalker podcast with @timoreilly, highly recommend
