Original tape date: March 5, 2013.
First aired: June 3, 2013.
The innovation economy begins with discovery and culminates in speculation. But with the state frozen as an economic actor and access to the public equity markets only open to a minority, the innovation sector is stalled. What role do the state, financiers, and entrepreneurs play in the innovation economy? What do we need to renew this process? The Financial Times and Foreign Affairs both named Janeway's book one of the Best Books of 2012. Speaker: William H. Janeway. Taped March 5, 2013.
