Welcome to Episode 24 of Wake Up, and the 3rd episode of The Bitcoin Times Series.
I’ve got Jeff Booth on with me today, the Author of “The Price of Tomorrow”, one of the best books written in 2020.
I will apologise in advance to the YouTube listeners. We seem to have had some audio issues during the recording.
I managed to get the audio-only file normalised, but the video file was harder to do.
Jeff and I discussed LOADS on this podcast.
It was a unique one because we pulled on threads and got philosophical across a number of dimensions.
We discussed his article, of course, which you find as part of The Bitcoin Times Ed 3 (Free download at bitcointimes.news).
We discussed what happens to the world in the absence of Bitcoin, and how so-called policy makers are not necessarily evil, but are stuck because the system itself is broken.
Furthermore, we looked into how technology is an accelerant and will only serve to precipitate the inevitable deterioration of the status quo.
We discuss Capitalism & innovation as the natural state.
Mental models for the “base” frame of reference
Why conspiracies are convenient, and often not a grand plan, but an inevitable outcome based on poor underlying incentives.
Pathways toward and away from WW3
The erosion of personal agency & responsibility
How do we fix that?
Jeff also suggested a series of Books which you should all have a look at:
- Lessons of history
- A guide to the good life
- Scale – Geoffrey West
- Why you are who you are – Mark Leary.
- The art of learning
- The order of time
- Why information grows
- Actionable Gamification
- Play Bigger
