There is no doubt that economic growth is positive, and that financial security is wonderful. But collectively, we seem to have given in to the notion that monetary gain is the primarily societal value. This transition to prioritising profit over everything else is recent, and it may be leading us to an existential crisis. On this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu, Kickstarter co-founder Yancey Stickler argues that capitalism is good but incomplete, and that we need to expand our definition of self-interest. He shares the story of Kickstarter’s founding and explains why they became a public benefit corporation, describes his philosophy of Bentoism, and details the path to self-coherence.
