Contra TikTok Paranoiacs– w/ Charles Sauer – Ep. 834

On Today’s Episode –

Mark dives right in with our guest Charles Sauer. They talk similar likes as far as authors go and give the listeners some options for good reads. We move to operating systems for economies. We get a clear definition of capitalism and how it was named by it’s enemies, and how it can actually work.
We move to TikTok, and the why’s and how’s of it. Mark goes all PhD. Into the science about how algorithms work and how it is very similar to how slot machines work. Dopamine hits matter, and social media knows it.
We wrap things up with a conversation on economics and the Biden budget. Mark and Charles explain how our current economy and budget’s truths can be manipulated by politicians and news outlets when they explain things like “we created a bunch of jobs”.
