[018] Smart cities. Vertical farming. US healthcare. Morality.

00:0000:00

Livestream available on Twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/MindMineTV every Wednesday at 3 PM PST!

IN THIS EPISODE

Smart cities bring convenience and sustainability; Panasonic is building one near Denver. Vertical farming can likely sustain external environmental changes and disasters. The U.S. spends more on healthcare than any other country — but not with better health outcomes. Morals may be inherent, and not subject to social convention or ethics.
