Robin Hanson

My guest today is Robin Hanson, an associate professor of economics at George Mason University and a research associate at the Future of Humanity Institute of Oxford University.

The topic is outside the box economic perspectives.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • Prediction markets
  • Vernon Smith and coming up with the “why” for booms and busts
  • Dealing with a complex world based on our limited abilities
  • Steering towards humanity’s future
  • Hanson’s physics background, and how he came to where prediction markets became a passion
  • How prediction markets can make us pay more attention to the truth
  • Hayek and Mises, and some of their thinking early on
  • What taboos and idealogical beliefs might stop one from making optimal decisions
  • If people have employed particular trading strategies to the prediction markets
  • Stop losses as information and as risk preference
  • Setting up a market to bet on geopolitical events in the Middle East, and the controversy based around that
  • Why DC politicians often cannot handle the research Hanson does
  • Why Hanson has elected to have his head cryonically preserved after medical death based on a cost-benefit analysis
