JBT's RL #20: The economics of Elon Musk, Gattaca is here, and focusing on what matters
By Jordan Thibodeau • Issue #20 • View online
Hey Everyone,
I hope you all had a great week. I found an interesting story on the moral quandary posed by genetic testing of embryos.  
Eventually this technology will allows us to cure genetic disorders  at the embryonic level, which you would be hard pressed to disagree with it, but what happens when people start asking to increase IQ points, height, or changing body characteristics? Where is the line drawn? This certainty reminds us of the movie Gattaca.
