It’s not often that the entire Autonocast crew gets fanboyish, but when it
comes to Voyage we tend to lose our cool a little. That’s because Voyage
has built a business that takes into account both autonomy’s greatest
opportunities to help people and a realistic view of its limitations. By
deploying autonomous vehicles in retirement communities, Voyage keeps its
system operating in a limited domain while helping people who aren’t
well-served by cars be more mobile. On this week’s show, we are joined by
Voyage co-founder and CEO Oliver Cameron, who explains how Voyage grew out
of the online university Udacity, how it identified retirement homes as an
ideal domain for AVs and where the company is headed.
Breaker: Venture Stories - Tyler Cowen On His New Book: “Big Business: A Love Letter To An American Anti-Hero”
Erik is joined by Tyler Cowen (@tylercowen), economist, author, and returning fan-favorite. He talks with Erik about why big business should be celebrated and why capitalism is effective but unpopular.
Tyler explains why he doesn’t quite believe that the main benefit of the firm is to lower transaction costs. He talks about why big business and capitalism have a branding problem, and what benefits they bring to the American people that mean they should be celebrated.
He talks about the tech behemoths and why concerns about their power are overrated, including why people don’t actually care as much about privacy as they say they do. He posits that users want more control over their information, not more privacy.
They discuss the vilification of finance in America, why Tyler says that corporate lobbying isn’t such a big deal in the US, and discuss how Tyler’s views differ from those of some of the most prominent writers on this topic.
