Student Broadcast Explores Drones and the Crypto Economy May 2 on PBS

Lafayette Lens, a student-run production created in partnership with WLVT Channel 39, the Lehigh Valley PBS affiliate, will air 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 2, on PBS. Every aspect of the show is produced by students in the Policy Studies senior seminar taught by Mark Crain, Simon Professor of Political Economy and chair of policy studies. It includes two 15-minute segments exploring the uses and implications of drones and other autonomous vehicles for business and society and the “crypto economy,” untraceable exchanges in cyberspace and encrypted currencies such as Bitcoin.
