Today I'm joined on the MainUnStream mic by Max Alter.
Max is an economist with a PhD in the History of Economic Thought in which he peels back economic theory's relation to the history of ideas. His views on the economy at both the macro and micro level prompt you to think more consciously and critically about the world you see around you.
Max is also a published author since 1990 and his book "Carl Menger And The Origins Of Austrian Economics" is being republished later this year.
That was at least his former life that creates an interesting background for our talk. These days Max helps professional services clients create content the speaks to their clients, literally, through video.
Max speaks four languages and has lived in several countries throughout his career.
On this episode of MainUnStream we cover more than any one conversation should handle including:
- Generational moral debt and who should pay it,
- Smartphones, technology and the necessities of or for life,
- The younger generation and their preparedness
- Training and retraining in the context of society's needs, and
- The pro and cons of a couple of different political systems
As said more than one conversation should handle so we'll have to ask Max to come back at least once more and I suspect several times to dive deeper into each of these topics.
MainUnStream is always free of hype and hidden agendas so it can and often does go in any direction. One thing is for certain, they are always informative, insightful and entertaining.
