Ep. 74: Somethingtopia

May 15, 2019

Episode 74 of the NonProphets podcast, in which Atief, Robert, and Scott discuss the ethics of providing information, such as forecasts, to clients (00:45), why public information may be preferable to private when it comes to managing the risk of information misuse (13:12), and why it's so much simpler, from a moral perspective, to just paint houses (17:31). They close with a discussion of recent forecasts by Nancy Pelosi (19:04) and Jared Diamond (32:19), a discussion that includes the definition of "Schrödinger's Asshole" (21:10).
