Research Chatter 6: Experimental Capitalism

by Charlie Williams


In this episode we discuss Steven Klepper’s new book, Experimental Capitalism. The book synthesizes Klepper’s wide-ranging industry studies to examine the origins and impact of US high tech industries. Where did some of America’s greatest industries come from and why did they falter? What was the role of government in fostering them? We talk about insights from the book for entrepreneurs, for policymakers, and for researchers.
