The Great Simplification with Nate Hagens


Feb 16, 2022

On this episode we meet with ecological economist and Professor in Community Development & Applied Economics and Public Administration, Josh Farley. 

Farley explores the importance of human cooperation in a modern superstructure that incentivizes competition. What role will cooperation play in helping us solve our largest existential problems?

Farley explains the critical social dilemma humans face: How can we grapple with the paradox that individuals are better served to act selfishly, but cooperation among individuals makes everyone better off?

Additionally, Professor Farley helps us distinguish the difference between how a system works, and how we can understand and participate in changing a system.
