Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon welcome presidential candidate and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to FFR to discuss how energy and space policy factor into our national dialog about the future.

Plus, Phil and Stephen continue their discussion of  Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler’s new book, Abundance: The Future Is Better Than Yout Think, which argues that we are much closer than most people think to solving some of the oldest and most intractable problems we have faced — including poverty, hunger, disease, and violence.

Phil and Stephen explore the role that dematerialization plays in bringing those changes about. Dematerialization is a powerful force and maybe something of a double-edged sword. What challenges and risks do we face in making the move from a scarcity-based to an abudance-based world?
