Intellectual Property & Monopoly Capitalism with Cecilia Rikap
In this second Crash Course episode of the series on Big Tech, Techno-feudalism and Democracy, we will zoom in on intellectual property. We have invited political economist Cecilia Rikap to explain where intellectual property comes from, what its role is in fabricating monopoly power, and why it is important to understand the rise of Big tech and Big Pharma. We will further ask Rikap: Is ‘intellectual monopoly capitalism’ a new accumulation regime? And how does it change the rules of the game? How does intellectual monopoly capitalism fit in the growing geo-political struggle between the US and China?
