In this episode, I speak with Glen Weyl about the ideology of artificial of intelligence, central planning, Communist China, and the problem of technocracy. In a wide-ranging conversation we also talk about collaboration, knowledge and experience, decentralization, individualism, and the Ukranian Genocide—and a number of thinkers including James Scott, Alexis de Tocqueville, Georg Simmel, Joseph Ratzinger, and more. We also discuss subways, coffee, complex society, and problem of ignoring the invisible. It was a lot of fun. Glen is an innovative and very interesting the thinker. He is a political economist and social technologist at the office the Technology Officer at Microsoft. He is also the founder of Radical XChange and the co-author, with Eric Posner, of the book Radical Markets.
