33: Josh Wolfe - The Mind Financing The Future

Update: 2020-05-0327


 Josh Wolfe of Lux Capital is a leading mind in the current wave of venture capitalists making waves. While aware of each other for some time, in this episode Josh sits down with Eric for their first meeting. Together the two explore various topics from comparing notes on their encounters with Jim Watson of DNA fame, to talking about what society gets wrong and how to see that as a source of opportunity. 

It is frequently asked what makes a great venture capitalist. This conversation reveals that it is likely not one thing but a combination of rigor, breath, flexibility of mind, openness, self-skepticism and mental courage to take on the unknown. That is because the myriad concerns that arise in any early stage attempt to grab the future by the tail from only the information available to us in the present will easily overwhelm those with narrow specializations. As the conversation takes many twists and turns, Josh's flexibility is put to the test as he freely doles out numerous wise observations from his wealth of experience.

a trump been played by China and Russia in game of cold war politics. US started trade war ith China talks broke down as far as China were concerned in December and with the help of a weak Europe and Putin doing as he pleases in Europe, so while Trump turned his back on NATO and Europe China with the help of Putin ran a sideshow alongside the failed trade talks. The Endgame was to topple the US economy making China and Russia stronger. Trumps obsession was his southern wall and the fact he sacked his national intelligence advisors were when the big nap happened and were to be taken advantage of by China . The attack came through Europe with the birth of the virus in China where the first mutation wasn't going to do too much harm economically speaking. The virus mutated once in Europe and it looks like its mutated at least once more in the US. If this virus mutatesvmany times in the US then the US economy will collapse handing all power to China
