Tyler Cowen - The Great Stagnation

Tuesday, July 5, 2011 at 7:00 pm
For all the excitement of smartphones and social media, are the new intellectual technologies as innovative and productive as those of the past? In this concise, thought-provoking look at recent economic history, the George Mason University professor and blogger argues that the pace of change has stalled. He compares today’s technological advances to those that fueled the Industrial Revolution, and finds that we have failed to keep pace in producing new wealth, jobs, and overall productivity.
