Stimulating discussion and historical context for the angst and opportunity of our time.
Chris Kutarna’s, Age of Discovery: Navigating the Risks and Rewards of our New Renaissance, takes a look at some of the massive forces disrupting our current age, and puts these turbulent times into historical context.
Here is a direct audio link to part 1 of his interview.
This is an incredible statistic that Kutarna cites: in 1990 about 1/2 of the adult population in the world were illiterate. Today thanks to the internet, approximately just 1/7th are illiterate. We now have about 3 billion more literate brains in the world than we did 26 years ago. No small feat. The potential for human enlightenment has never been larger.
