‘Governing Money After Bitcoin and the “Sharing Economy”:

Closed Payment Communities and the Public Good’

by

Bill Maurer

University of California, Irvine

Monday 8 September 2014, 2-4pm

University of Warwick

Everyone is welcome

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.
