NPR’s Planet Money creator and award-winning New Yorker staff writer Adam Davidson stops by to reassure us that the middle class isn’t dying and robots are not stealing our jobs.
He explains how our feelings of dislocation, confusion, even panic result from a lack of understanding, and he counters them with clarity and insights from his new book The Passion Economy: The New Rules for Thriving in the Twenty-First Century. Davidson discusses how the 20th century economy of scale has given way to a century of economy of passion—one full of new ways of making money, nontraditional paths toward professional fulfillment, and unprecedented opportunities for combining our careers with the things that bring us joy. An optimistic take on our economic future with stories about those who have cracked the code to success—don’t miss it.
