A Chat with Daron Acemoglu on Power and Progress

In this episode we chat with Daron Acemoglu about his book “Power and Progress: Our Thousand-Year Struggle Over Technology and Prosperity” co-authored with Simon Johnson. Progress depends on the choices we make about technology. New ways of organizing production and communication can either serve the narrow interests of an elite or become the foundation for widespread prosperity. With their breakthrough economic theory and manifesto for a better society, Acemoglu and Johnson provide the vision needed to reshape how we innovate and who really gains from technological advances.
