Capitalism is a cultural concept as much as it is an economic one. In his talk, Kary explains how capitalism has evolved over time and how we have blindly ended up outsourcing trust to the financial system at the expense of clarity. Moving forward, Kary believes we need to delve further to find the right questions to ask and the right kind of interactions to have to bring back transparency and reduce inequalities in today’s society. And this is where the Blockchain comes in.
Curious by nature, a news addict by habit and a tech fan by default, Kary Bheemaiah has had a varied career, as a marine engineer, a legionnaire in the French Foreign Legion, a business professional and now as a researcher.

He is currently the head of research at Uchange.co, a mentor at StartupBootCamp, a Research Associate with Cambridge University and a visiting lecturer at ESCP Europe and Grenoble School of Management. His first book, “The Blockchain Alternative: Rethinking Macroeconomic Policy and Economic Theory”, was published in March 2017.
