How Innovation Works

Innovation moves

Issue 87 - summer 2020

According to Matt Ridley, an innovation is much more than just a new invention. Innovation is the transformation of inventions into things that bring people a universal benefit - and therefore no less than the main event of the modern age. Based on many innovation stories - from growing potatoes to antibiotics to blockchain - Ridley shows the dynamics of constant further development and emphasizes that innovations cannot be attributed to individual brilliant minds.
