The Roots of Progress

Video: Tyler Cowen on progress, stagnation and complacency

The Torch of Progress, Episode 2

In the second episode of The Torch of Progress, I talked to Tyler Cowen, “the godfather of progress studies”, to ask him about progress, stagnation, complacency, progress studies itself, and his experiences with Emergent Ventures and Fast Grants.

Upcoming events (all times Pacific):

More coming soon, including Joel Mokyr and Anton Howes.
