My Presentation on ‘Seeing (Platforms) Like a State’

This past weekend I presented at the Southern Economics Association annual conference a paper I have been working on for some time, titled “Seeing (Platforms) Like a State.” The paper plays off of James C. Scott’s book, “Seeing Like a State.” I argue that the lessons from Scott’s book are relevant to the governance of tech platforms.

The paper will be up in full soon-ish over at Lawfare. (EDIT: The paper is now available at the Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology). But the presentation is available below.
