This episode is a conversation between George Gilder (@ScandalOfMoney), author, investor, writer and economist, Patrick Stanley (@PatrickWStanley), head of growth at Blockstack, and Erik Torenberg, partner and co-founder of Village. It was originally released on The Stacks Podcast presented by Blockstack.They talk about:- Gilder’s Information Theory, and why it is central to everything, including the world economy and biology.- Why Gilder says that “wealth is really knowledge,” why money is not wealth, and why using money as anything other than a measuring stick is one of the biggest economic problems of the past and future.- The problem with the “morbid financialization of the world” and the fact that share buybacks financed by near-zero interest loans from the government have driven economic growth for the last several years.- Why prices are just measures of time.- The importance of community and how to measure it in a society and economy, as well as Gilder’s thoughts on the scourge of materialism. - Why Gilder is skeptical of the potential world-dominating effects of AI and isn’t as concerned about privacy as others are.- Gilder’s critique of the Bitcoin framework.- What Gilder looks for in companies when he “puts his VC hat on.”- The role of the fed, China’s unique economy, trade wars, debt, and the charter cities movement, and much more.

George Gilder is a 79 year old super futurist. He’s the author of  #2 book in China, “Life after Google The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy.” I had him on the podcast because he’s somehow been able to predict the future for decades. Steve Jobs read his book in 1990 and passed it around to friends. “So I believe I had some vague influence on the evolution of iPhone,” George said. Now he’s investigating the future of blockchain, bitcoin and more. And in this episode, I ask him to teach me how to think like a futurist so I can profit (financially, creatively intellectually and personally).   I write about all my podcasts!

Author George Gilder discusses his conception of knowledge, power, and the economy, as described in his latest book, Knowledge and Power: The Information Theory of Capitalism and How it is Revolutionizing our World. He argues that a low entropy, or predictable and stable, carrier is required for the emergence of knowledge – whether it be a fiber optic cable and communication, or a social system governed by the rule of law and economic innovation. Such a social system is not spontaneous, but rather developed through sacrifice and a religious order.
