STILLNESS: How to Find Peace in a Frantic World

FREE MONEY: Why Andrew Yang Thinks a Giveaway Can Save the Economy

Andrew Yang has a pretty bleak vision for the future. The way he sees it, we’re staring down the barrel of a techno-apocalypse. Robots will replace millions of workers. Income inequality will skyrocket. And social isolation will become the new normal. But Yang has a big idea he thinks can stave off disaster. It’s called universal basic income — a $1,000 check in the mail each month, no strings attached. Yang’s been pushing this magic bullet for a long time, first in his book, “The War on Normal People,” and now as he campaigns for president. But would it really make a difference, and is it even realistic? Andrew Yang makes his case to Rufus Griscom in front of a live audience in New York City. Support us by supporting our sponsors!

FREE MONEY: Why Andrew Yang Thinks a Giveaway Can Save the Economy

HABITS: How to Let Go of The Old and Bring in the New

Why is it so hard to break bad habits and replace them with good ones? You may think it all comes down to willpower. But social psychologist Wendy Wood says that if you really want to change your life, then you need to tap into your unconscious mind. Wood, who’s just written a book called “Good Habits, Bad Habits,” chats with Next Big Idea Club curator and host of TED’s Work Life Podcast Adam Grant about harnessing the science of habit formation to make positive changes that last.

GATHERING: How to Make Our Time Together Meaningful

Why do so many of our get-togethers feel awkward and unproductive? Priya Parker, author of “The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters,” says it’s because most of us don’t know how to transform stuffy events—from conferences to tedious family dinners to office holiday parties—into memorable gatherings full of moments to savor. Parker shares the secrets of being a good host, lessons everyone can learn from Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding, and tips for revolutionizing your next business meeting.

FUTURE: Can We Build a More Generous World

SUCCESS: The Dirty Secret of Getting Ahead

Most of us are taught that hard work and talent are the keys to getting ahead. Turns out it’s not so easy. In his new book, “The Meritocracy Trap,” Yale professor Daniel Markovits says meritocracy isn’t leveling the playing field. Instead, it’s a pretense for concentrating privilege and intensifying inequality. He tells us the time has come to redesign the workplace, reinvent higher education, and reimagine meritocracy so it actually works for everyone. Support us by supporting our sponsors!

POWER: Why You Have More Than You Think

Colleges, businesses, and bureaucracies have long operated on an "old power" model — rigid hierarchies that rule from the top down. But Henry Timms says that paradigm is going extinct. In his book, "New Power: How Power Works in Our Hyperconnected World — and How to Make It Work for You," Timms argues there's another force emerging. It's transparent, collaborative — and it's going to embolden all of us to change the world from the bottom up. Support us by supporting our sponsors!
