BPF Book Review of How Innovation Works

BPF Book Review | “How Innovation Works and Why It Flourishes in Freedom”

Ridley’s latest book tackles the complex subject of innovation with a treasure trove of stories and anecdotes from the past 500 years of real life inventors and innovators that moved history forward by improving productivity and with it, our quality of life. How Innovation Works is a great book for entrepreneurs, investors and those tasked with economic development.

Rosa Parks and a Texas Mom

In 1953, Rosa Parks refused to go to the back of the bus in Birmingham.  She was a seamstress and a civil rights activist.  She was arrested for civil disobedience for violating Alabama’s segregated bus laws – which were subsequently held unconstitutional under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.

The Coronavirus has clobbered the world economy but for the travel and hospitality industries, it has become an existential crisis.  The consequences are lingering far too long with no end in sight.  Two good examples to examine are the airlines and airports.  The data is really ugly but it is right there on the TSA website for all to see — the daily number of passengers screened by the Transportation Security Administration.

BPF Book Review of Great Society

BPF Book Review — “Great Society: A New History”

I highly recommend “Great Society” (the book not the policies).  It is a great tutorial on how a large group of really bright people with good intentions can make a bad situation even worse with poorly conceived and uncoordinated solutions.
