53. How Culture Shapes Economies with Garett Jones

• 86 min

David speaks with Garett Jones, an Associate Professor of Economics at George Mason University, and the author of 3 books: Hive Mind, 10% Less Democracy, and The Culture Transplant. They talked about: Democracy, how good it really is, and whether we have too much of it. Then they looked at intelligence, the impact IQ has on your job prospects and whether companies and nations should optimise for having higher IQ workers. Finally, they discussed cultureโ€”what it means, how it changes us, and the impact immigrants have on the places they move to. ๐Ÿ“œFull ๐Ÿ“น Watch on Youtube ๐Ÿ‘ค Connect with Garett:Twitter: @GarettJones Books: Hive Mind | 10% Less Democracy | The Culture Transplant | ๐Ÿ—ฃ Mentioned in the show:Adam Smith | Joel Schneider | Capitol Hill | Patriot Act | Tyler Cowen | Talent | Robert Axelrod | The Evolution of Cooperation | Steve Jobs | Elon Musk | Bill Gates | The Melting Pot Theory | Neo Europes | David Epstein | Range | Michael Kramer | FANG company |ย  Charles C.
