Likely impossible for me to correctly convey as a lowly marketer, I took quite a few things away from it. here are a few takeaways:
GDP isn't a proper measure of our success as a nation. It follows a similar line of thinking that I subscribe to: creating capital just to create more capital isn't sustainable forever. At some point, we need to re-evaluate how we're measuring success and productivity, especially when we can watch GDP's of nations rise up until the point where they are on the brink of default. Something is way off.
There's a gap (marketer gets confused here) in the labor market. We have lots of people who are capable of producing valuable work. We have lots of capital that sits around doing nothing. Why not bring these two together? I'm a huge champion of this. Vinny goes into great detail here and I cannot do it justice.
Finally, Vinny explores the idea of content production and the value of it to companies like Amazon and Facebook. It was an interesting perspective for me and I feel like it helped me reflect on my view of platforms at a much-needed time. My opinion on the value exchange between platforms and people is quite different due to my own experiences. Definitely good to see dissenting opinions every once in a while.
Looking forward to the idea evolving over time Vinny! And I really enjoyed your presentation in Tampa a few months ago. I felt like it's already extending beyond what you wrote about in this book.
