Why You Might Be Happier Than Bill Gates

Tyler Cowen explains in the video, below.

There is much to be debated in Cowen's views about the internet and the role of money, but, as I have said before, Cowen's new book, Create Your Own Economy: The Path to Prosperity in a Disordered World is pathbreaking in its analysis of individual minds and how they order information. There are many details I don't agree with in Cowen's analysis (and comments on this video), but his Big Picture view of the different ordering methods of different minds and its relation to the internet is a significant new direction in attempting to understand the human mind.

As a bonus, there is a nice warning from Cowen on the penchant by President Obama to lock out those who refuse to go along with plans he has devised.
