Welcome to the 241st episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc.'s editor in chief, James Ledbetter.

First, MIT research scientist Andrew McAfee dials in to discuss his upcoming book, More From Less. He offers a fascinating take on modern capitalism--that the world is currently prospering economically by using fewer resources for the first time in history--and details what that means for the future of humanity and economies worldwide.

Next, Drunk Elephant founder Tiffany Masterson joins to chat about the ongoing journey of her skin care startup. Frustrated by a lack of healthy products on store shelves, Masterson founded the company in 2012 and has guided it through tremendous growth ever since--landing her on this year's Inc. Female Founders 100 list.

Finally, I delve into the story of MzeroA.com, an Ocala, Florida-based online aviation school that recently scrapped its health insurance in favor of fixed-rate partnerships with local medical practitioners. It's incredibly risky, but the strategy has helped the company earn appearances on this year's Inc. 5000 and Inc. Best Workplaces lists.
