Is American innovation plateauing? How can we encourage more
of it, both through public policy and culture? Should we be concerned that
China’s innovative capacities will overtake us? And what really motivates
innovators to innovate, anyway? Matt Ridley recently joined me for an AEI webinar
to discuss these questions, and I’m happy to present our conversation to you
all in podcast form.

Matt is the award-winning and bestselling author of numerous books, including “The Evolution of Everything” and “The Rational Optimist”. Since 2013, Matt has also been a member of the House of Lords. His new book is “How Innovation Works: And Why It Flourishes in Freedom”.
