Governing Money After Bitcoin and the “Sharing Economy”

University of Warwick’s Global Research Priorities – Global Governance (GRP-GG) group invites you to:
‘Governing Money After Bitcoin and the “Sharing Economy”: Closed Payment Communities and the Public Good’
A global governance lecture by Professor Bill Maurer, University of California, Irvine
Monday 8 September 2014, 2-4pm, University of Warwick
Recent and much-hyped experiments in money and the so-called sharing economy are bringing to the fore the public interest in payment. What happens when “peer currencies” and the peer economy recode private moneys and renting as liberation and revolution? And what happens to money and exchange when it occurs through closed loops connected by private gateways?
The event will be chaired by Professor Nigel Thrift. Everyone is welcome.
