When you think of startup companies advancing the state of technology, software is probably the first thing that comes to mind. But scientific breakthroughs are still coming in the world of atoms, and that’s what venture capital firm Prime Movers Lab invests in. To give us a sense of their vision for the future, the VC firm put together a “Breakthrough Science Roadmap” to describe what a life of abundance in 2050 might be like. In this episode of “Political Economy” I’m joined by Ramez Naam and Christie Iacomini from Prime Movers Lab to discuss that uplifting vision of tomorrow and how startups are working to realize it.

Ramez is a computer scientist and Chief Futurist at Prime Movers Lab, while Christie is an aerospace engineer and Vice President of Engineering.
