KMO welcomes Chad Hill of the Hipcrime Vocab blog back to the C-Realm to talk about the history of money, the nature of national debt, technological unemployment and what to do with humans who have become economically superfluous. It's a fairly gloomy conversation, and KMO's attempt to end on an optimistic note falls short. Oh well, it's better to know what you're up against than live in a fool's paradise.
KMO talks with Chad Hill of the HipcrimeVocab blog about the origins of inequality. Chad thinks it all started with debt. Chad explains how the meaning of the term "Luddite" has changed since it was coined. KMO goes on a long rant about human brains don't seem to be up to the challenge of Facebook, and KMO and Chad exchange notes on the task of trying to write a book.
