On Friday 3 May, we were delighted to welcome Max Rangeley as our guest speaker. Max spoke to the Oxford Libertarian Society on the topic of Austrian economics, blockchain technology and the future of free trade and technology post-Brexit.
Max has kindly allowed the Society to distribute his presentation to its members; this can be viewed here. In his talk, Max also referenced an essay to the Mont Pelerin Society he wrote on blockchain and the literature surrounding it; this essay can be viewed here. Finally, Max also recommended the Springer textbook, Banking and Monetary Policy from the Perspective of Austrian Economics.
Max is a board member of the Initiative for Free Trade and the Ludwig von Mises Institute; he is also the editor of the Cobden Centre. Max is the CEO of ReboundTAG, which sells microchip lost luggage tags that are now used by large multinational firms including Lufthansa.
In April 2016, Max presented the closing address at the Blockchain Summit in the European Parliament, which was organised by the Cobden Centre and included attendees from the World Bank, IMF, Europol, Microsoft and Nasdaq.
