Interview starts at 12:00 and ends at 44:01
 
I’ve got to write this down in a way that helps people understand how this cycle works, where technology comes in and allows us to render scarcity irrelevant.

And that’s where I point to people like Uber, Airbnb, Amazon—who are in the habit of saying, “How could we give people more for less?” Which is not the way traditional business was operating.
