Ep151 - David Graeber | Debt: The First 5,000 Years

por Talks at Google

While the "national debt" has been the concern du jour of many economists, commentators and politicians, little attention is ever paid to the historical significance of debt.

For thousands of years, the struggle between rich and poor has largely taken the form of conflicts between creditors and debtors—of arguments about the rights and wrongs of interest payments, debt peonage, amnesty, repossession, restitution, the sequestering of sheep, the seizing of vineyards, and the selling of debtors' children into slavery. By the same token, for the past five thousand years, popular insurrections have begun the same way: with the ritual destruction of debt records—tablets, papyri, ledgers; whatever form they might have taken in any particular time and place.

Enter anthropologist David Graeber's Debt: The First 5,000 Years, which uses these struggles to show that the history of debt is also a history of morality and culture.

In the throes of the recent economic crisis, with the very defining institutions of capitalism crumbling, surveys showed that an overwhelming majority of Americans felt that the country's banks should not be rescued—whatever the economic consequences—but that ordinary citizens stuck with bad mortgages should be bailed out. The notion of morality as a matter of paying one's debts runs deeper in the United States than in almost any other country.

Beginning with a sharp critique of economics (which since Adam Smith has erroneously argued that all human economies evolved out of barter), Graeber carefully shows that everything from the ancient work of law and religion to human notions like "guilt," "sin," and "redemption," are deeply influenced by ancients debates about credit and debt.

It is no accident that debt continues to fuel political debate, from the crippling debt crises that have gripped Greece and Ireland, to our own debate over whether to raise the debt ceiling. Debt, an incredibly captivating narrative spanning 5,000 years, puts these crises into their full context and illuminates one of the thorniest subjects in all of history.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

David Graeber teaches anthropology at Goldsmiths College, University of London. He is the author of Towards an Anthropological Theory of Value, Lost People, and Possibilities: Essays on Hierarchy, Rebellion, and Desire.

Ep150 - Walter Isaacson | The Code Breaker: Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, and the Future of the Human Race

por Talks at Google

Author Walter Isaacson discusses his recent book "The Code Breaker: Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, and the Future of the Human Race", a gripping account of how Nobel Prize winner Jennifer Doudna and her colleagues launched a revolution that will allow us to cure diseases, fend off viruses, and have healthier babies.

Bestselling author of "Steve Jobs" (2011), "Einstein: His Life and Universe" (2007) and more, Walter Isaacson has established himself as the biographer of creativity, innovation, and genius. Einstein was the genius of the revolution in physics, and Steve Jobs was the genius of the revolution in digital technology. We are now on the cusp of a third revolution in science, a revolution in biochemistry that is capable of curing diseases, fending off viruses, and improving the Human species itself. The genius at the center of his newest book "The Code Breaker" is American biochemist Jennifer Doudna, who is considered one of the prime inventors of CRISPR, a system that can edit DNA.

Ep149 - Lauren Webber | In Cheap We Trust

por Talks at Google

Cheap suit. Cheap date. Cheap shot. It's a dirty word, laden with negative meanings. It is also the story of author Lauren Weber's life. As a child, she resented her father for keeping the heat at 50 degrees through the frigid New England winters, and for rarely using his car's turn signals-to keep them from burning out. But as an adult, when she found herself walking 30 blocks to save $2 on subway fare, she realized that she had turned into him.

What does it mean to be cheap? When is it mature to stow money away and when is it miserly, or even Scrooge-like? And how might Americans navigate economic downturns in an era when everything seems disposable and when credit has felt dangerously unlimited?

In answering these questions, In Cheap We Trust combines a consideration of cheapness as it relates to personality, lifestyle, and philosophy with a colorful ride through the history of thrift in America, from Ben Franklin and his famous maxims to Hetty Green, the 19th-century millionaire named by Guinness as "the world's most miserly person," to the branding of Jews, Chinese, and other ethnic groups as cheap in order to neutralize the economic competition they represented. Weber also explores contemporary expressions and dilemmas of thrift, from Dumpster-diving to Keynes's "Paradox of Thrift" to today's recession-driven enthusiasm for frugal living.

Ep145 - Ayelet Waldman | Bad Mothers

por Talks at Google

Israeli-American lawyer and novelist Ayelet Waldman came to public attention with the publication of her essay “Truly, Madly, Guiltily”, in which she describes the complex & sometimes conflicting feelings she has for both her husband & her four children. This essay provoked so much public controversy that Waldman decided to write a collection of essays about parenting and motherhood, entitled “Bad Mother: A Chronicle of Maternal Crimes, Minor Calamities, and Occasional Moments of Grace.”

This New York Times bestselling book says that no woman can be a perfect mother - it argues that competitive, neurotic parenting & having unrealistic expectations may be damaging to our children, and that society is too hard on other women's parenting skills. The book includes chapters on feminism, motherhood, and all its associated anxieties, including anxieties about breastfeeding, marriage, postpartum sexuality, teenagers, homework, and the loss of an unborn child.

por Talks at Google

Pot. Weed. Grass. We all think we know cannabis. But do we? Somewhere between the illicit joints and pot brownies, the conversation stopped -- and only now is it re-taking the center stage as more states pass legislation to legalize.

In Brave New Weed: Adventures into the Uncharted World of Cannabis, author Joe Dolce travels to the new frontier of cannabis, shedding light on everything you didn’t know about weed (and didn’t even think to ask). Through dispatches from Amsterdam, Israel, Colorado, and more, Dolce endeavors to “tear down the walls of the cannabis closet” and find answers to questions. From detailing trials where murderers claimed “insanity due to marijuana consumption” to uncovering success stories about the plant’s impressive medicinal compounds, Dolce paints a fresh portrait of our attitudes towards cannabis and reveals the power of weed.

Ep137 - Daniel Dennett | From Bacteria to Bach and Back

por Talks at Google

How did we come to have minds?

For centuries, this question has intrigued psychologists, physicists, poets, and philosophers, who have wondered how the human mind developed its unrivaled ability to create, imagine, and explain. Disciples of Darwin have long aspired to explain how consciousness, language, and culture could have appeared through natural selection, blazing promising trails that tend, however, to end in confusion and controversy. Even though our understanding of the inner workings of proteins, neurons, and DNA is deeper than ever before, the matter of how our minds came to be has largely remained a mystery.

That is now changing, says Daniel C. Dennett. In From Bacteria to Bach and Back, his most comprehensive exploration of evolutionary thinking yet, he builds on ideas from computer science and biology to show how a comprehending mind could in fact have arisen from a mindless process of natural selection. Part philosophical whodunit, part bold scientific conjecture, this landmark work enlarges themes that have sustained Dennett’s legendary career at the forefront of philosophical thought.

Ep126 - Misha Nonoo | Sustainability & the Future of Fashion

por Talks at Google

Misha Nonoo is a New York-based womenswear designer who was the first to pioneer on-demand manufacturing in a move to dramatically reduce environmental impact and improve the way scaling businesses operate. This model sees each garment cut and sewn in response to every individual order, reducing inventory waste by 90%.

Every year, 80 billion pieces of new clothing are purchased globally. However, from production to consumption, the global fashion industry is one of the most resource intensive and wasteful business sectors. In fact, according to the United Nations, the fashion industry contributes more to climate change than all international flights and maritime shipping combined.

Against that backdrop, the fashion industry’s heavy reliance on female workers in the global south greatly impacts gender and social equity standards. A 2019 Oxfam report found that 0% of Bangladeshi garment workers and 1% of Vietnamese garment workers earned a living wage.

In this episode, Nonoo discusses what sustainability looks like in fashion and the need for reinvention of the fashion and textile industries as the world charges towards its 2030 climate and sustainability goals.

In conversation with Deepika Phakke.
