Episode Description

Cheryl Esposito welcomes W. Brian Arthur, PhD, an economist and thought leader in technology, the economy, and the science of complexity. His new book, The Nature of Technology: What It Is and How It Evolves provides an elegant and powerful theory of technology's origins and evolution. Brian says, "I began to realize that our wealth and our well-being all emerge out of technologies…More than any thing else technology creates our world...it creates our wealth, our economy, our very way of being.” How is it we know so little about the evolution of technology, something that is creating our world? In Brian’s words “we are missing an ‘-ology’ of technology. Why does this matter? Join the conversation as Brian challenges us to explore how nature and technology intersect and why it matters to you.
