Innovation: The Government Was Crucial After All

by Jeff Madrick

Innovation: The Government Was Crucial After All<br/><br/> by Jeff Madrick | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
We hear time and again from those who should know better that government is a hindrance to the innovation that produces economic growth. Above all, the government should not try to pick “winners” by investing in what may be the next great companies. Many orthodox economists insist that the government should just get out of the way. A new book, The Entrepreneurial State by Mariana Mazzucato, forcefully documents just how wrong these assertions are.

The High-Tech Soldiers of the Future Are Here | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
Those troops you saw in science fiction movies as a child are now real. A few years ago, many countries recognized a need to upgrade the individual infantryman and thus started their own "future soldier" programs. Most of them completed more or less the main priority objectives, applying them to some of their elite troops and special forces, bringing together commercial, off-the-shelf technology and state of the art military gear and equipment.
