Show Notes

This is the seventh edition of our Georgist podcourse and again we delve into another form of power. Intellectual property has become a huge part of our lives as we tip toe in between patents, copyrights and trademarks. Have these been construed too much in favour of the innovator? Or are there other factors establishing the barriers to competition? Regular themes again pop up as we digest Georgist perspectives on property from another vantage point. Remember Everything is a Remix! A fantastic documentary.
