While we begin the session discussing what athletes can teach us about retirement, we end talking about the new hotness out of Silicon Valley. What if technology is moving fast enough that we don’t need to work anymore, and instead get a guaranteed check just for being alive? Would universal basic income work?
At the midway point of today’s show we go to Austin, Texas, where Brad and Ken from the DraftApp team talk about the latest FinTech innovation getting swallowed by bigger financial firms. Who’s pushing the envelope and the banks? We’ll talk about some of the partnerships on today’s show….and also discuss what this might mean for innovation in banking and investing.
