Capitalism Is Sucking Itself Off feat. Grace Blakeley
Why is it that there are so many billion-dollar startups that ultimately don’t do anything? Under normal circumstances, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Hussein (@HKesvani) would just make a joke about Yu-Gi-Oh dragon dick in order to describe it. However, this week we were lucky enough to get expert insight from Grace Blakeley (@graceblakeley), the New Statesman’s economics commentator. So, learn all about the inherent contradictions in the value-extraction approaches of this newer and dumber capitalism—explained of course through the usual genre of joke (we never, ever, ever change our format).
