Summary

CEO, Stephen Hollingshead, talks about the mission of ChangeInEx to empower people to work via special economic zones in the cloud. Stephen maintains that the plumbing of the global banking system is clogged with well intentioned regulations intended to prevent terrorism and money laundering, but which are more effective at stifling millions of people from selling their labor and creativity in the international marketplace.

Through state of the art technology and trust relationships with governments in underdeveloped economic zones, ChangeInEx will make it much cheaper for banks to comply with onerous KYC/AML regulations and for people to get paid for their work from anywhere in the world.

What is IPR: My Digital Self?

The mixed blessing of the digital age has reached a turning point in what some have called the Fourth Industrial Revolution. My Digital Self, with host Matthew Foley, explores digital technology as it affects the interrelation of human rights, property rights, privacy, and money.

Will emerging blockchain technologies enable us to take back our privacy, own our identity and use non-sovereign digital currency, known as cryptocurrency, to engage in commerce? Listen to discussions with guests who explain these cutting-edge technologies, tell us how they are currently being used and pull back the curtain to our possible futures.

IPR Podcasts presents issues and analysis that matter to you from the world's thought leaders. The Institute for Policy Research [IPR] is an interdisciplinary policy research center of the Catholic University of America.
