Technology and innovation are driving forces behind economic growth. As technology expands, quality of life rises across the globe. New technologies always run the risk of having both good and bad uses, but we shouldn’t let fear of the bad prevent us from enjoying the good.

Mercatus Center technology policy scholars Jerry Brito, Eli Dourado, and Adam Thierer will discuss the emerging technologies of drones, Bitcoin, and 3D printing focusing on:

  • the benefits of these new technologies; and 
  • how proper policy can allow them to flourish.
