Reboot 2018 Fireside Chat: Disruption and Civil Disobedience

We used to praise disruptors who flagrantly challenged outdated regulations. But the boundary-pushing of some companies has left a bad taste. Has this chilled the willingness of the next wave of startups and investors to take the same kinds of risks? Has this made policymakers more willing to intervene early? What’s the best legal framework to approach disruptive technologies?

The Regulatory Transparency Project co-sponsored the Lincoln Network’s Reboot 2018 conference.
