This episode we discuss types of power from Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan. We muse over inequality and what it takes to stop it through the lens of Walther Scheidel's "The Great Leveller". We discuss politics and why we hate talking about politics (we like to think all our opinions on economics are just common sense and are in no way political). We bet on whether TSMC can ever be taken down from their dominant spot manufacturing chips and, of course, bring you new ways to play and break world records in Diablo II.
