The Venturesome Economy

From comes this interview with Amar Bhidé of Columbia University. He talks to Romesh Vaitilingam about his new book, The Venturesome Economy: How Innovation Sustains Prosperity in a More Connected World. He explains why know-how developed abroad enhances prosperity at home, and why trying to maintain the US lead by subsidising more research or training more scientists will do more harm than good.

Bhidé has also been interviewed at EconTalk.
