Does anyone really have a monopoly on wisdom?
In his new book, Hans Jürgen Jakobs describes the monopolies of our century in some depth. He examines issues, such as whether monopolies engender dependencies, forfeit diversity, erode healthy competition, and lead to anarchy. Are our contemporary monopolists clever enough to deprive statesmen of their power? Or has human creativity always brought down monopolies in the end? In the latest of her Duet interviews, Dr Caldarola and Hans-Jürgen Jakobs discuss the concept of monopolies and their effects on today’s life.
