In this talk Yunrou explores this trade along with many of the other modern ways that technology tempts and encourages us to spend our time and money. But who is behind this temptation? Are the promises of a “better life” really true? Join Yunrou as he provides straight talk and a big-picture perspective on this challenging life topic.
