Featured Session: Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes with Josh Constine


Chris Hughes started Facebook with Mark Zuckerberg, but now he’s calling for the company to be broken up. Hear him discuss how anti-competitive behavior by monopolies in tech and elsewhere hurts society, and what we can do to fix it. He’ll field questions from TechCrunch’s Josh Constine about the story of Facebook’s rise, its effects on our lives, and why he decided to speak up. Plus, they’ll explore the need for a rethinking of political economy in America and what role a guaranteed income, wealth tax, and competition policy could play to create more economic growth in America.
