I’m often asked how I quickly synthesize information and form opinions. The value, to me, of doing this can be summarized as follows: 1) Be more informed about technology, markets and the economy. 2) Improve my situational awareness about trends and competitors. 3) Have a clearer picture of how a company or sector is doing over another. 4) Make better decisions.
Not sure how extensive these "deep dives" are, but the questions you seem to be answering in the content calendar seem quite basic... Personally would like to see an example deep dive before committing $99 per month (aka per $99 deep dive). Love the learning framework though!

Thank you very much Chamath.
Why aren’t you taking on America’s amp up to massively consequential election (between sociopathic criminal and good guy from a bygone political era on the decline)?
Maybe in the September, October time frame…
I am big fan of yours, in terms of my intellectual stimulation, your posts and talk contribute to a great extent. I would love to subscribe but i wont be sharing my payment details over X, if there is any other route i can opt for (including substack itself) would be keen
Also $99 for monthly post looks on a higher side without knowing the details of monthly deepdives and how extensive they would be ... is there a way to get more clarity on this
I like this a lot
Looking forward to your content.
The learning curve that you have mentioned above are quite similar to many people who are involved in research and analysis work follow. When I read your deep dive lesson plan, I didn't find anything super exciting and relevant.
I feel your thoughts on putting the first deep dive for free is a brilliant idea and I will look forward to reading it.
All the best!
On X the subscription appears to be $9 a month. There are few small typos in the letter so maybe the $99 is a typo? (If you need a writer or copy editor I’m available)
Deep dive on what is stopping us from transitioning to both types of nuclear, but for fission, how to make nuclear waste reusable and safe. Currently, we bury the waste, which can have long lasting effects if the storage areas do work properly. Is it possible to have a plug and play reactor with this nuclear waste that could be shipped worldwide while also using the waste as fuel (the us has quite a bit of it)? There are ways to recycle nuclear waste, but my basic understanding is that the economics make it impractical. If that is the only reason, what type of incentives and fines could the govt put into place to guide the energy transition in this direction? Does it make the most sense for helping stabilize the climate by reducing pollution (carbon capture methods are probably necessary) through this method and can it be achieved in a timeline that matters? Are SMR a better fit? Could they be modified to be able to handle nuclear waste? Is there a batter method for energy production that can reduce pollution at the same time? Ie. We generate so much power, that we can run an enegy intensive carbon capture machine simultaneously.
How do the other renewable energies fit into this equation while still keeping a focus on reducing pollution in the fastest manner possible?
I'm interested to see what you put together on the entire energy topic. My comments are just a small piece of a much larger issue of energy.
Thank you, Chamath. This will help me democratize first principles thinking not only as a future physician but also in my startup company, AL STOCK TRADES.

P.S. If I may, add an option for a yearly payment plan where people can pay in full, resulting in a heavily discounted price. Just a thought; you are the boss.
This looks like a great first step in allowing the community that values and executes on your insights to develop a deeper relationship. Look forward to engaging.
very easily explained dopamine stimulating norepinephrine reuptake cycle..at one point in my education i definitely required over excitement about the process you explained in order to partake positively from it. long acting dopamine stimulants can change lives if taken correctly, at the correct time 🤷🏻♀️
If you find that you are looking for more help, I am very interested in the opportunity to collaborate with you as a full-time research assistant for your new research endeavor. The prospect of both contributing to this service and enhancing our collective knowledge is an exciting one for me. I am eager to immerse myself in the process of creating top-tier content while learning alongside you.
I am deeply committed to compounding my knowledge in markets and believe that supporting your journey is an ideal way to fulfill this passion. I am eager to explore how my skills and enthusiasm can be leveraged to enrich your research team and make a meaningful impact toward our common objectives.
Looking forward to the possibility of working together.
Looking forward Chamath
How about scholarship subscriptions?
awesome news, will it have regional price parity ? tuning in from bangladesh
