In episode 325, we welcome our guest, Bhu Srinivasan, author of AMERICANA: A 400-Year History of American Capitalism and founder and CEO of SCORETRADE, which is developing the fastest and most precise in-game sports prediction experience possible. In today’s episode, we go all the back to the 1400s and hear how venture capital was behind the discovery of America. Bhu talks about some of the most successful entrepreneurs in American history, including Vanderbilt, Carnegie and Rockefeller. We talk about the role the government has played in helping American capitalism thrive, and the history of booms and busts and the role they serve over time. As we wind down, we discuss the future of capitalism in the U.S. and around the globe, and hear about Bhu’s current venture around crypto and sports gambling.
