Tyler Cowen - Talent, Collapse, & Sex

It was my great pleasure to speak once again to Tyler Cowen. His most recent book is called Talent, How to Find Energizers, Creatives, and Winners Across the World.

We discuss how sex is more pessimistic than he is, why he expects society to collapse permanently, why humility, suits, intelligence, & stimulants are overrated, how he identifies talent, deceit, & ambition, & much much more!
