Forward Thinking on tech and the unpredictability of prediction with Benedict Evans
Is Technology a Regulated Industry?
Technology is going to be a quite qite regulated industry in that sense. But the problem is, if you then dig into what does it when we say regulate cars? It's got nothing to do with building light rail or how our tax policy accounts for single family homes versus apartment buildings near railway stations. There are lots of different things in thereand they're mostly cande complicated and full of trade offs. We don't have that sort of innate understanding of what's the difference between these two industries. And so i think tech policy is just as hard as transport policy or education policy, or health policy or anything else.
