The Industrial Revolution led to the creation of firms. The Information Revolution has led to the creation of platforms. Amazon and Flipkart, Ola and Uber, Google and Apple — are all platforms that connect producers to consumers, and gain tremendous power in the process. Anupam Manur returns to The Pragati Podcast to help us understand the platform economy and the new challenges that face us.
