Time, Knowledge & The Bet On The Future
S2:E38 Featuring Gale Pooley
Hosted by Addison Wiggin
Gale L. Pooley is the co-author of Superabundance: The Story of Population Growth, Innovation, and Human Flourishing on an Infinitely Bountiful Planet. Pooley argues, from the Julian Simon school of economics, that technology and the “time-value” for production of goods is far more important than price. It takes a minute, but begins to make sense in our digital age.
