<div dir="ltr">I am not sure, but, having watched the first 30 minutes of this - I don't think Mr. Moglen is promoting Greek-style Austerity measures be taken anywhere.  I believe (and please, correct me if I am wrong) that he is referring to the fact that there is less money available to the average person today than there previously was.  Basically, what he seems to be promoting is how can we encourage, promote, and facilitate innovation without just throwing money at someone and saying "make something cool".<br>

<br>Basically, it seems (and I am completely oversimplifying here) his answer is Free Software™®©, legislation that will make all devices hackable (phones, tablets, etc.), and making all human knowledge that was recorded prior to this lifetime (which he doesn't define, but I'd guess 70 ~ 100 years) should be made freely available to anyone and everyone.<div>
