In this episode Brian and Chris discuss shareholder value, important categorization problems such as whether a hotdog is a sandwich or ice is a rock. We talk about inequality in Australia and bet on whether movies will ever make a comeback (of course not, everyone just listens to podcasts now)

The Friedman Doctrine holds that a corporations only purpose is to return value to shareholders

Did Brian edit the Shareholder Value wikipedia page?

The Ontology of Psychiatric Conditions by Scott Alexander

Bill gates and Vaccine Production

Emergent Ventures and Fast Grants

Bryan Caplan really hates masks

What defines a sandwich anyway?

The categories were made for man, not man for categories - Another Scott Alexander post

Sorites Paradox. Maybe the Soroity problem if we believe Brian?

ACOSS report on inequality in Australia in 2018



Big list of coffee bets
