    Scott Galloway Says Amazon, Apple, Facebook, And Google should be broken up

    – Without further ado, Professor Galloway. (upbeat music) – My name’s Scott Galloway, I teach at NYU, and I appreciate your time. I have 118 slides and 1800 seconds, 17 seconds per slide. So let’s light this candle. I have two presentations, one is five minutes, it’s a summary of the presentation I was gonna give, and then a 25 minute presentation on content, that I have never presented before. The reason I highlight that, it starts with my friend Henry Blodget has plausible deniability for what I’m about to say. This is the first and the last slide, everyone of my 6200 students has seen in the grand strategy…

    The Map of Mathematics

    The mathematics we learn in school doesn’t quite do the field of mathematics justice. We only get a glimpse at one corner of it, but the mathematics as a whole is a huge and wonderfully diverse subject. My aim with this video is to show you all that amazing stuff. We’ll start back at the very beginning. The origin of mathematics lies in counting. In fact counting is not just a human trait, other animals are able to count as well and e vidence for human counting goes back to prehistoric times with check marks made in bones. There were several innovations over the years with the Egyptians having the…

    The Brilliant Design of the Euro

    The Euro, praise it or not, has become one of the most important currencies in the world, being the sole legal tender in more than 20 countries. The Euro is the sole currency of countries including Germany, France, Italy, Finland, and Slovakia, all very different countries with very different histories and symbols. This all means that the Euro couldn’t be stylized to fit one nation, so how does it represent every country in Europe without individually representing any individual country? In short, the Euro does this by being magnificently ambiguous. First off, most currencies tend to pay homage to the history of their nations, often doing this by honoring important…

    Why we have too few women leaders | Sheryl Sandberg

    So for any of us in this room today, let’s start out by admitting we’re lucky. We don’t live in the world our mothers lived in, our grandmothers lived in, where career choices for women were so limited. And if you’re in this room today, most of us grew up in a world where we have basic civil rights, and amazingly, we still live in a world where some women don’t have them. But all that aside, we still have a problem, and it’s a real problem. And the problem is this: Women are not making it to the top of any profession anywhere in the world. The numbers tell…

    Is this the future of SOCIAL MEDIA? Find out what U-Space is on C-Level with Chris DeBlasio

    – Today on C Level, Tobin Brogunier, the founder of USpace, stops by. We talk about social media and privacy. (upbeat music) Tobin, thanks for comin’ by. So we’re gonna talk about privacy, social media, a lotta stuff, but tell me a little bit about you first. – Well, my background is actually in humanities, not technology. I graduated with a degree in English Literature from Oberlin College in 1995, which makes me old officially. And (mumbling) middle old. – Middle old, yeah, yeah. – So with a focus in fine art. And my career has been actually in editorial and commercial photography. So that’s been the majority of my…

    How Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google manipulate our emotions | Scott Galloway

    [This talk contains graphic language Viewer discretion is advised] So, this is the first and the last slide each of my 6,400 students over the last 15 years has seen. I do not believe you can build a multibillion-dollar organization unless you are clear on which instinct or organ you are targeting. Our species has a need for a superbeing. Our competitive advantage as a species is our brain. Our brain is robust enough to ask these really difficult questions, but, unfortunately, it doesn’t have the processing power to answer them, which creates a need for a superbeing that we can pray to and look to for answers. What is…

    Comparing Social Media to Tobacco (w/ Roger McNamee)

    ROGER MCNAMEE: When I look at this situation, I believe that we, the humans, formerly known as users, have way more power than we realize. We do have the power to influence our elected representatives. And they are really listening. They know that all of us trusted tech for a long time, and we’re now paying a price, because we didn’t see the trouble coming. And I think for the regulators, this industry is so much less complex than health care, banking. They’ll figure it out. Essentially, what is it, 2 billion people a day across Facebook’s three properties are coming in. 2 billion is a lot of people. BRIAN…

    Economic Update: Reparations and Forgiving Student Debts

    Welcome, friends, to another edition of Economic Update, a weekly program devoted to the economic dimensions of our lives. I’m your host, Richard Wolff. I want to jump right into a remarkable story. I want to talk about people who don’t get talked about enough. Two million Americans are what we call “home healthcare workers.” Mostly, these are women and people of color, and mostly, they serve older people. Ninety percent of Americans, when polled, say they want to age in their own home. They don’t want to be put in an old-age home or anything like it. Those are people who’ve given their whole lives to raising families, doing…
