Agreed, I think whats important to remember too is that “the crack in the armor” is a great opportunity to catalyze structural change. People’s behavior is notoriously hard to change so making this be not a moment I think is the opportunity here.

What happens after 30 under 30 lol
K Miles
44:21
the social safety net is broken (arguably non existent), and Siebel just said that he sees the investment levels behind closed doors and they’re not a sea change , and it takes a really long time horizon to pan out...and we’re on the brink of (arguably in) a recession.
