  • Adam Davidson, co-founder of NPR’s Planet Money, can trace a line through time from homemade clothing and baked goods to today’s passion economy. Davidson argues that a combination of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are how we got to where we are.
  • We shifted from an intimate and localized economy of goods and services, to an economy of scale, and finally to what Davidson refers to as “intimacy at scale.”
