Business of Life Season 1 Episode 11: Are startups helping or hurting?

Presented by

A new generation of so-called tech companies have glutted the media spotlight, promising new services to connected young people while disrupting old models. But are they putting a new spin on classic ideas?  Are they really changing the way we live, or merely helping the one-percent feel a bit more like the .01 percent?

This week, we are joined by Farhad Manjoo of the New York Times, HealthTap’s Ron Gutman, and Alice Truong of Quartz who will break down everything you need to know about the startup economy.

Welcome to Season 1 of “The Business of Life”: a fresh perspective on the most important issues of our time, as told through the facts, figures, dollars, and cents that shape our world. Hosted by journalist Michael C. Moynihan, each episode brings together an eclectic panel of writers, thinkers, policy experts, and scholars to break down everything you need to make sense of the most complicated topics of our time.
