Marina Krakovsky: The Middleman Economy

Introduction by Paul McHugh

Drew Rosenhaus, the most powerful agent in the NFL, infuriates team owners but manages to give clients what they want. In his own not-so-humble opinion, the NFL would fall apart without him.

LaJuan Stoxstill-Diggs, an appliance flipper on Craigslist, jumps on opportunities to buy used washers and dryers, trading them at prices and times that make sellers and buyers happy.

What do these very different business people have in common? They are all middlemen, an indispensable part of our economy and, in The Middleman Economy, Silicon Valley author Marina Krakovsky argues that in our hyper-connected age they're more prevalent and more valuable than ever.

Krakovsky contends that middlemen provide value by playing some combination of six roles, with each role solving a problem that, without the middleman, would inhibit mutually beneficial deals. By showing how the most admirable brokers, agents, dealers, and other go-betweens play these roles, this book puts middlemen in a whole new light and reveals how readers can become more valuable players in any industry.

The event is free - please register today.
