New Industries Come From Crazy People

I’ve been behind on posting my work to this site. Some recent material:

New Industries Come From Crazy People at Palladium. This is a look at how different cultures interface with the antisocial weirdos like Thomas Edison and Steve Jobs who drive industrial breakthroughs. Most societies don’t tolerate them. The ones that do, drive economic progress.

Narratives Podcast with Will and David Jarvis. We talk about some of the ideas in the Palladium essay, how state capacity has changed over the last century, why I’m optimistic about America’s future, and more.
