I talked to Deirdre McCloskey for the fifth episode of “The Torch of Progress”, the speaker series of Progress Studies For Young Scholars. Topics include the role of bourgeois liberty in the Great Enrichment, how England surpassed the Netherlands, and why she doesn’t think that science or patent laws can explain the Industrial Revolution.
