Social and Economic Engineering / InterPlanetary Panel Discussion

Thursday, June 7, 3:30pm

Santa Fe Railyard / main stage


All life on earth is social life, what are its limits? Are our social institutional systems the best there are? Could you have one planet that was one nation? How can we optimize equality, efficiency as a function of system architecture and size? Are terrestrial institutions the best that the universe has to offer? Do we expect aliens to have discovered capitalism or Marxism?Are there alternatives to money? What is the family unit like (if there is a family unit) in space? What social system would be the most effective colonizing strategy for other planets?

Participating Panelists: Cory Doctorow, Jessica Flack, DA Wallach and Rob Gehorsam
