Bronwyn and I talk about the growing tendency of people to willingly reduce their individual freedom for the sake of technological convenience.
Outsourcing your decision-making to automated algorithms will gradually erode your personal agency, she says.
We also delve into behavioural economics and discuss the moral problems with ‘nudging’ people to make decisions they would not have made otherwise.
So-called ‘Libertarian Paternalism’ is an oxymoron, Bronwyn says.
We also explore the potential unintended consequences of environmental engineering, as well as the dangers of Modern Monetary Theory.
