The Next Big Thing is You:

  • Misappropriated macroeconomic jargon
  • Consequences of disruption and other economic violence naturalized and downplayed via bastardized theories by Darwin or Malthus
  • Milton Friedman-esque swipes at central banks as irredeemable cabals that hate freedom
  • The word “gamechanger
  • Endruns around anti-trust law dressed up as Quantum Leaps for Mankind
  • Any pricepoint under $150/month dismissed as “less than you spend on your coffee every morning”
  • A photo of a “founder” or two standing on a stage at a trade show, preferably wearing a cordless mic
  • Market prolepsis
  • Smarmy appeals to how obviously governments can’t be trusted with the task of regulation, or with “data” itself
