The Discovery Machine

Mike Treder: It's not just poetry to say that "unleashing of the best minds" is largely what drove the 20th century's surge in innovation and productivity. In fact, since the invention of the printing press, our world has been made immeasurably better by allowing more minds to invent and create. Education, democracy, free markets, better communications technology, and improved travel and transport options -- all have made possible this spectacular liberation of human potential.
