Episode 75 - The Market Loves You: Jeffrey Tucker on the nature of Innovation
I discuss with AIER director Jeffrey Tucker his new book, The Market Loves You, covering triumphs of markets and innovation such as the railroad, the word processor, and shoes. We turn to today’s big ideas in Bitcoin, Social Media, and the App Frenzy, and the unresolved problems that the next crop of entrepreneurs, engineers, and consumers will tackle.
Finally, we cover the nature of innovation itself. Why do people become entrepreneurs? What is the role of engineers and product developers? And what is quality?
There’s also something about a chicken stick at the airport, and big announcement for me!
