Description

This is episode 119 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast!
This episode is easily one of our best. It’s all about what the world will be like when the robots take over. Theoretically, people could have access to virtually infinite resources if we’re ever able to efficiently automate enough tasks. What will people be interested in if that happens? How will the economy operate? What will rich people want when they already have everything they need?
One serious possibility we’ll discuss is that people will use art as a currency. It might sound crazy, but is art the one thing that robots could never automatically produce? Do we think machines could ever generate words, images, sounds, or videos with meaning? What is it that really gives purpose to a work of art?
Tune in for our thoughts on all that and tons more! Your hosts are Daniel Brown, Tim Baker, and John Stuart. Enjoy!

  • I was curious if there are any folks around here who subscribe to any of Casey Research’s paid publications. I’m wondering if you do- 1) Do you feel it is a good value? 2) Has it helped you increase your wealth? 3) What level of investor is the publication you selected geared towards? I’m not expecting anyone to reveal any “top secret” stuff, I’m only to trying to decide if subscribing is right for me. Thanks!

  • History shows that control of the individual is achieved through the factors of production: labor, land, capital control through labor = slavery control through land = feudalism control through capital = the debt system Government is not necessary to control individuals through the factors of production. It is only necessary to own the factor of production. A study of history reveals multiple examples of this control. Are there any examples when this control of the individual through the factors of production has not existed?

  • There’s a lot of controversy surrounding the NCAA and whether or not the players should get paid to play. Some critics of the current system say that they should get paid because of the time commitment required. Other critics are OK with them not getting paid but are against the practice of them not being able to receive gifts from recruiters and agents. I think it’s an interesting topic from the liberty perspective because some people might see this as free labor/servitude, which we know can be a controversial topic in a lot of political circles! What do you think about all of it?
