Ep 9: How Should We Regulate Social Media, If At All?

March 19, 2019

Is the push for more regulation of social media platforms really the right approach post-Christchurch (2:27-18:14)? A scandal in the United States reveals how families are rorting the College system to get their children into leading schools, what does this say about our culture’s approach to education (18:14-32:56)? And how much of a problem is crony capitalism in the modern economy(32:56-43:29)? Scott Hargreaves and Dr Chris Berg are joined by Dr Zachary Gorman and Gideon Rozner to answer these questions and discuss what they’ve been watching, reading and listening to this week, including the Oscar-winning documentary Free Solo, A Companion to John of Salisbury, Counterpart and Right Here, Right Now: Politics and Leadership in the Age of Disruption by former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper
