Tyler Cowen | Civilization as Crusonia Plant, Stubborn Attachments and Future Discounting
The Foresight Institute Podcast
“If your view is that the future per se matters as much as the present, then you are led to maximizing sustainable economic growth.”In this episode we are joined by Tyler Cowen, economist at George Mason University. Cowen writes the "Economic Scene" column for The New York Times and since 2016 has been a regular opinion columnist at Bloomberg Opinion.Here Cowen speaks about his book Stubborn attachments, and argues that our reason and common sense can help free us of the faulty ideas that hold us back as people and as a society and makes the contemporary moral case for economic growth as well as provide inspiration and optimism about our future possibilities.Music:Intractable by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license. https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100194Artist: http://incompetech.com/Remarks: This recording has been altered to fit this video.

731 - Crypto, Inflation, Housing, Cities and Talent with Tyler Cowen
The James Altucher Show
What are the future states of the cities? Will Cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or Ethereum replace Fiat money? Is inflation happening, and how will it affect us? What is the future of housing? Is the South East the new West? In this episode, Tyler Cowen, an American economist, came back on to answer all my questions. Will New York City come back? How can we save the city? What happened when the rent moratorium expired? Which tier 2 or perhaps tier 3 cities are people moving to? Is crypto here to stay (in what form or shape)?

The video I am responding to is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_6vY... which is on the @Mercatus Center channel with Tyler Cowen. The original is well worth watching in its entirety. My response does not do it justice and is just intended as a supplement for those who have watched the whole thing and might have some questions at the end about various parts. I’m not pretending to speak for David - I’m just giving my own perspective given my understanding of what I’ve read in, for example, “The Beginning of Infinity”. Tyler Cowen does a fantastic job here of questioning David and articulating what are some of the frequently heard objections about this world view. It is, for example, common to hear something between a denigration to a downplaying of the importance of Popper especially among academic types. David provides an excellent explanation of Popper and I have a few things to say about that myself.
Some believe our world has changed at a rapid pace in recent decades. From the rise of the internet to the proliferation of startups spinning out inventions, it can certainly seem that way. In this episode, though, economist Tyler Cowen argues that none of this has really transformed the ways we live over the last 50 years. But he contends that now that's changing, as new breakthroughs in science and medicine push us out of the so-called "Great Stagnation" into a new era of meaningful innovation. Can’t get enough TED?
