A lot of what we want in life is dictated by what other people covet – which can lead to a supply-and-demand problem. Luke Burgis is entrepreneur-in-residence and director of programs at the Ciocca Center for Principled Entrepreneurship at the Catholic University of America. He joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how this competition for the same things draws us together and, later, pushes us apart. His book is called “Wanting: The Power of Mimetic Desire in Everyday Life.”
