5-hour workday for accountants, American views of automation, & Bitcoin taxes

I'm joined by Amanda Aguillard, David Emmerman, Ryan Watson, and Jay Kimelman of Bluewire Strategy Group. We discuss how an accounting firm in Australia successfully moved to a 5-hour workday, a new survey that shows most Americans see automation is coming, but don't think it will affect them in their own lifetimes, Bitcoin traders who have no idea they owe a lot of tax, and how the IRS is making things difficult by not being clear, and new smart glasses that don't make you look like a dork (anymore than you already do).
