In Radical Markets, Eric A. Posner and E. Glen Weyl argue that the major problems of our time—low growth, rising inequality, and political conflict—are due to the failure of market institutions, which have allowed people and corporations to accumulate excessive market power. Posner and Weyl contend the solution is not more regulation but the reorganization of markets so that markets are freer, more open, and more competitive. The ten essays found below are a product of the one-day symposium held last fall when scholars met to discuss Posner-Weyl's groundbreaking book.
