I discuss knowledge and power with Russ Roberts. The central theme of Unchecked and Unbalanced is that we live an a world with increasingly important dispersed knowledge and yet in a structural sense power is becoming more complicated. The result, I would argue, is a more brittle political system, more prone to major breakdowns. Let me know where my explanations work and where they do not. I will be doing some talks on the subject over the next few months.
