The Future of the Transhumanist Economy w/ Presidential Candidate Zoltan Istvan.
The economy is already changing dramatically because of science and technology. Transhumanism, the field of using radical innovation to improve the human being, is at the root of much of that change. Whether it's artifical intelligence, genetic editing, chip implants, or dozens of other radical innovations, these technologies are changing the way we live and work. Soon, many jobs that were around for centuries will be lost to robots and software. Can capitalism survive? Can it thrive in the future? How will the future transhumanist economy be?
Zoltan Istvan was founder and 2016 US Presidential candidate of the Transhumanist Party, a political organization dedicated to putting science, health, and technology at the forefront of American politics.
At the age of 21, Zoltan began a solo, multi-year sailing journey around the world. His main cargo was 500 handpicked books, mostly classics. He’s explored over 100 countries—many as a journalist for the National Geographic Channel—writing, filming, and appearing in dozens of television stories, articles, and webcasts. His work has also been featured in many major television channels, such as CNN, FOX News, and BBC.
Zoltan writes futurist and transhumanist-themed blogs for The Huffington Post, Vice’s Motherboard (Transhumanist Future), and Psychology Today (The Transhumanist Philosopher). He has also written for Slate, Gizmodo, Daily Mail, Salon, Newsweek, Wired UK, Singularity Hub, The San Francisco Chronicle, and Outside.
