Author Chris Guillebeau talks about new book: “Gonzo Capitalism”

More from this show

The author of The $100 Startup, Side Hustle, The Happiness of Pursuit has written a business book about the new era of Capitalism.

Author Chris Guillebeau has written the new book called: GONZO CAPITALISM: HOW TO MAKE MONEY IN AN ECONOMY THAT HATES YOU.

In the book, Guillebeau writes about a world where novelty and creativity are currency, and the creators are in control. It’s a look at the community of gamers getting paid to play, and the armchair pundits beating the bookies in online prediction markets. He addresses TikTok “Sleepfluencers,” AI artists, and the band of renegade entrepreneurs and investors upending the rules of finance. In the world of Gonzo Capitalism, anything goes.

Along the way, Guillebeau shows how we can all capitalize on the new tools and platforms at our disposal.

Guillebeau is appearing at Changing Hands bookstore in Phoenix Tuesday evening. You can find out more about his book online.
