KEYNOTE: BRETT SCOTT: OPEN-SOURCING FINANCE

 

Where: Paccar Theatre

When: 17:30-18:30, 14/11/14

 

The financial sector is an opaque, alienating and destructive complex of centralised intermediaries. Financial, and broader economic, democracy requires breaking down the power of such unaccountable institutions and reconnecting people to the reality of their money. Does the open source movement offer a vision for how to do this, and are we already seeing this happening? In this talk, Brett Scott will explore the five pillars that might underpin a future system of open source finance.
