About the Speech:

In his address Mr. Gapper gave a tour d’horizon of the current national and European laws that regulate technology and innovation, ranging from court decisions on Uber and Google to tax regimes intended to encourage foreign direct investment and entrepreneurship. He discussed the best ways to encourage innovation and allow new enterprises to challenge incumbent industries. Mr. Gapper considered the widespread belief that Europe tends to protect incumbency and is less open to innovation than the US, questioning whether this is fair and what would be the right approach. 

This is the third event in the IIEA-McCann FitzGerald series on New Models of Regulation
