Recent work of Campbell and Zakharevich has focused on building machinery for studying scissors congruence problems via algebraic K-theory. Their main application was the study of the Grothendieck ring of varieties. In this talk, I will present an application of their framework to the study of cut and paste invariants of manifolds. In particular, I will talk about the construction of a spectrum that recovers the classical "cut and paste" groups for manifolds on \pi_0.
