Description

Our systems of higher education and employment have increasingly evolved towards valuing a deeply focused specialization of knowledge and ability. But trend analyst Vikram Mansharamani argues that cultivating the knowledge and skills of a generalist can help preserve our autonomy and self-determination.


Mansharamani is, himself, impeccably well-rounded. He’s an author, investor, and professor, who has taught at Harvard and Yale. And he worries that we have become too reliant on a social caste of experts to provide us guidance on impenetrably complex topics that affect our lives and work.


Later in the show, we talk with Jeff Wald, author of the “The End of Jobs”, about the future of work.
