Rebecca Costa - Why Society Sometimes Needs to Collapse and How We Can Predict the Future

Slo Mo: A Podcast with Mo Gawdat

This week's guest, Rebecca Costa, is one of my new favorite people on the planet. She and I speak the same language (of the nerds), but don't worry. You'll surely find her as enlightening and entertaining as I did.Rebecca was introduced to me by Dr. Jed Diamond, who recently featured some of my work in an article on his website and will be next week's guest on Slo Mo. Rebecca Costa is an American sociobiologist, futurist, author, and host of the podcast, The Costa Report.  She is the preeminent global expert on the subject of "fast adaptation" and brings both an evolutionary biologist and technologist's perspective to the subject of adaptation.In other words, humanity is evolving in extremely bizarre ways due to a rapid rate of technological advancement. Nobody has made sense of what that means for our futures better than Rebecca. After retiring, she spent six years researching and writing the international bestseller The Watchman's Rattle: A Radical New Theory of Collapse. Her follow-up book titled On the Verge was introduced in 2017, also to critical acclaim.You can't miss this one, so listen as we discuss:How both Rebecca and I are both a bit East and a bit West (and fully nerds).Why data is undoubtedly the best guide for decision-making and position-taking.There are no facts about the future, only probabilities, but they're becoming more likely.How we could have predicted the 2017 Las Vegas shooting and stopped it.Why AI will not be self-serving because intelligent beings don't serve themselves."We have Paleolithic emotions, Medieval institutions, and Godlike technology."Predictive technologies and why the weather report will soon be 100% accurate.Humanity's model of decision making is not wrong. It's just slow.We have data indicating that major disasters are coming, but we're not designed to care.When society becomes too complicated, it adapts by collapsing as a reset mechanism.You need food, shelter, water, love, and meaning. Science has proven this.Her new podcast The Costa Report and how it aims to manipulate mainstream media.By making knowledge accessible to all, humanity will make better decisions (for all).Instagram: @mo_gawdatFacebook: @mo.gawdat.officialTwitter: @mgawdatLinkedIn: /in/mogawdatWebsite: mogawdat.comConnect with Rebecca Costa on Facebook @rebeccadcosta, Twitter @rebeccacosta, and her website, rebeccacosta.com.

Is There Life After Covid? Rebecca Costa #5068

Financial Survival Network

When it comes to humans, and new technology, predicting the future has never been easier, so says noted futurist Rebecca Costa. As the world comes out of its Covid induced coma, most individual behavior will stay the same, but societally it’s going to be a different ball game. What will happen to with the debt? Hyperinflation? Is allowing the economy to hyper-inflate a solution? As we know from history, the government’s best friend is inflation, until it isn't. They are out of options. As Rebecca says, there’s a long tail economic impact. In an article she  recently wrote about what the government can do about in the next 3-6 months to head off potential disasters in a number of sectors, she mentions individual credit ratings as having taken a hit. Of course it's not on government's radar at all, but to individuals it's extremely vital. Lower credit scores create a piling on effect Millions of people have seen their scores tanks, through no fault of their own. It's a government induced disaster. Lower credit scores mean higher costs of credit or the inability to obtain any credit at all. Fairness is lacking.  Government is reacting to the situation rather than getting out ahead of it. Perhaps a roll-back of credit ratings to pre-pandemic rates or a limit on the negative impact during this time is in order.  We need pragmatic problem solvers to lead us. People who will catch these things before they go exponential. The problems are known and yet nothing is being done. The result is too much uncertainty about their eventual response. Rebecca sees subprime mortgage collapse 2.0 in the offing. The financial institutions were responsible for 1.0 and now they’re going to make the same mistake again. People should be permitted to rewrite their loans for a longer time period. Massive restructuring needs to be on the table. Make mortgages assumable so the property can stay in the family. Same with student loans. Simple elegant solutions that work.  Rebecca informs us that there’s a direct correlation between happiness and trust. People who trust their government are generally happier than those who don’t. We can’t wait for a time to governmental trust to be restored. We also don't see it happening in the near future.
