We are extremely excited to start our series from Singularity University, which was on 23-24 August. And wow, what an incredible show, where 1,300 South Africans were exposed to the 29 future thinkers from all over the planet. The world is changing and these are the beautiful minds changing it. We had the privilege to interview most of these amazing people. To kick off the series off we spoke to Shayne Mann, who with his brother Mic Mann brought Singularity University to Africa. What an absolute gentleman and shape shifter.

The team chats to maverick economist Prof. Steve Keen. Steve was one of the very few economists who predicted the 2008 financial crisis and has just written the book, ‘Can We Avoid Another Financial Crisis? (The Future of Capitalism)’. The short answer is no, we can’t avoid another financial crisis. To understand this, we dig into why Professor Keen’s prediction goes against mainstream economists. We also look at how this crisis will hit South Africa and the current thinking on how to solve our current economic challenge.
