💌 Cambridge Professor Shailaja Fennel explains our broken relationship with food - If we are what we eat, then our relationship with food is deeply personal. Over the decades there have been massive increase in agricultural output. Far from being short of food, we now produce much more than what is required to feed the world. There is a ton of wastage in the supply chain and we seem to have prioritized convenience over nutrition. That has resulted in a global obesity epidemic.
💌 The Concept of Elite Bargain + Why Beer and Pizza are Important for Understanding Development Economics - In his new book “Gambling on Development”, he explains how some countries progress while others do not. He reckons it has to do with the “elite bargain” an underlying commitment to growth and development by members of a country’s elite (the people within the fabric of society, the economy, and politics who make decisions or can disproportionately influence them).
💌 Ex-Palantir CFO, "Silicon Valley Pornstar", and the Crisis of Masculinity - In his new book “Silicon Valley Pornstar”, Jason deconstructs how and why a person of his wealth and stature went out of his way to destroy everything he had worked on. He talks about his childhood trauma of his father walking out and his mother having to deal with the situation with anti-depressants.
