Could Our Time Be A New Renaissance?
The world may appear to be a scary place at the moment, but Ian Goldin and Chris Kutarna see opportunity.
They point to another period of history that featured both great discoveries and advancements AND wrenching social and political change: the Renaissance, which pulled the Western world out of the medieval period.
Could this time of great knowledge and risk parallel that one?
Goldin and Kutarna make the case in their book Age of Discovery: Navigating the Storms of Our Second Renaissance. The book is newly updated in paperback. Chris Kutarna is our guest.
