Innovation. Is it innate in us or is it a skill that can be fostered in individuals and our societies ? Either way , it is a hallmark of the health and the lifeblood of our economies and a secret to our prosperity.

“Perhaps the true genius of the modern economies that emerged in the 19th century was that they achieved mass innovation, by encouraging diverse business people to come up with new ideas, by requiring that these new ideas “make it” with the public, not the government, and by allowing these ideas to compete for the support of entrepreneurs and financiers possessing a pluralism of beliefs, so that ideas that were suspect because of their great novelty would have a chance.”
