FinTech made in Switzerland

Manual Stagars is creating a Swiss FinTech documentary and talked to me about the blockchain and opportunities for Switzerland. (28 minute video)

Furthermore, Finanz & Wirtschaft published a comment I wrote on a closely related topic, proposing a very specific change of law that would allow to transfer shares and other securities more easily, without requiring written signatures.

“In using systems of adaptive agents to create a ’guess’, we are counting on the tendencies of these systems of adaptive agents, as plodding as they are, eventually to find their ways to equilibria that we economists (who, after all, made up the model!) have difficulty finding.”
Thomas Sargent in 'Bounded Rationality in Macroeconomics'
