The Calamitous Shift from Technology to Financial Innovation

Public Seminar by William Kingston,former Associate Professor(Innovation) TCD Author of Innovation: the Creative Impulse in Human Progress; and Interrogating Irish Policies

Institutions, above all, individual property rights, decide whether human creative energy goes into productive directions. For more than two centuries, they were based upon visions of the public good, and led to an unprecedented upsurge in scientific and engineering innovation; then they were allowed to be captured by interests that could benefit from them, which led to unproductive financial innovations instead. The only escape from this disaster is to get the laws right again, but this may no longer be possible in the Western world.
