264 | Balaji Srinivasan: How and Why to Start New Countries

Balaji Srinivasan, author of The Network State, returns to The Realignment to discuss why he thinks internet-native "Network States" are the successors to the nation-state, how he sees American and global politics reorienting around cryptocurrencies in the 2020s, compares and contrasts the prospects of the United States, China, and India, and why mainstream elites will struggle to navigate this emergent order.
