S1:E4 – The Politics of Information
Can an algorithm replace a market system? In this episode, I’ll talk to my friend Aidan Paradis about economics, politics, and the role that information technology plays in mediating the two. We’ll discuss lightbulbs, grocery stores, and communism (sort of). There will be exactly one pun in the episode. My interview with Aidan is centered on Sophie Roell’s interview with economist Henry Farrell, which can be found here. Full show notes at cantunread.com! This podcast is powered by Pinecast.
