Since the pandemic, the world has had to learn how to navigate change. Factors like political extremism, the Great Resignation, the market downturn, etc. have impacted everyone, especially young people. America has a problem with prioritizing the wealth of older generations and keeping young people from generating any wealth of their own. According to Scott Galloway, one of America’s leading crises is that it is filled with too many “young, broke, and alone males.”

Scott Galloway is a bestselling author, NYU business school professor, tech startup veteran, and brand consultant. In his latest book Adrift, Scott examines the future of our nation and how we got here. He attempts to make sense of it all and offers his take on where we're headed and who we'll become.

In this episode, Hala and Scott talk about what the American Dream has become, Scott’s view on work-life balance, and why the world is currently producing economically and emotionally unviable young men. Scott explains the detrimental effects that loneliness has on young people today. Additionally, he shares why he thinks the phrase “follow your passion” is misleading.

Topics Include:

- Don’t follow your passion. Find your talent.

- The triangle of happiness: relationships, fitness, work

- Why we aren’t as rich as our parents

- Modern men are emotionally and economically unviable

- The importance of investing in young people

- Why marriage and birth rates are declining
