E61| Value & Exchange, w/ Matthew Pirkowski
Play • 1 hr 37 min
This is a conversation about the nature of value, wealth and exchange in consideration of the paradigm shifting digital communications platforms we’re almost all inexorably tied to. It begins with my asking Matthew how he thinks about the nature of thinking itself, and also about what matters in life.
