Thoughts in Between: exploring how technology collides with politics, culture and society
Anton Howes: The history of innovation - and how to get more of it
February 22, 2021
Matt Clifford: Co-founder of Entrepreneur First
Anton Howes is a historian of innovation. He writes a newsletter on the topic, Age of Invention, and is the author of Arts and Minds (Princeton University Press, 2020), a history of the Royal Society of Arts.
In this conversation we discuss:
- Where does innovation come from?
- The importance of "the improving mindset" in the history of economic growth
- Why it feels like progress is slowing down and why that's wrong. And much more.
