More Press On The Gifts Of Athena

In his most recent Economic Principals column, David Warsh recommends both Joel Mokyr’s The Gifts of Athena and Nathan Rosenberg’s Schumpeter and the Endogeneity of Technology as good reads on the economics and history of technological change. Warsh’s comments on The Gifts of Athena (and its author) are insightful and to the point, and reinforce my previous musings on this book in this 30 October post.
