the younger generation would know which skills to build for the new economy

Homesteading, hunting, fishing, foraging...

I'm not a primitivist. A sustainable economy will require more people, to work in agriculture and energy to reduce carbon intensity. It will require more of our best minds working on these problems instead of using their talents to get more clicks using machine learning.

Our economies are more planned than we like to admit. It's just that right now we don't exercise any control over the direction or goals of our economic production.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
