Orwell and Goode: How Time Preferences Make or Break Civilization, on Red Ice TV

A very good interview with Orwell and Goode about the perception of time among our contemporaries.

In other terms, modern men and women tend to do what suits best for them immediately, regardless of any negative consequences that it might bring for future generations.
