Glen Weyl

I am a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research New England, where I work on political economy in the nineteenth century, interdisciplinary sense. I am visiting Yale University's economics department and Law School as a Senior Research Scholar. With Eric Posner and Kevin Slavin I co-founded Collective Decision Engines, a start-up that commercializes a voting technique I proposed called Quadratic Voting. My joint book with Posner, Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society, is forthcoming from the Princeton University Press in May 2018.
