My debate with Benjamin Barber on cultural diversity

You can find the video here.  This may be a more direct link.  Here is the Smithsonian summary:

Tyler Cowen and Benjamin Barber present two different perspectives on the role of market liberalization and cultural diversity and representation.

Tyler Cowen advocates working within a liberal market paradigm, using UNESCO as a ‘marketing tool’ for cultural representation and has a positive trade-enhancing vision towards culture.

Benjamin Barber critiques the structure of neo-liberal market expansion, pointing out the inherent structural inequities that maintain this system and do not allow equal representation of cultural groups, communities, and increasingly, nation-states.
