Alex Tabarrok harps the economic advantages of freedom and ever-increasing globalization that the human race has experienced in the last 100 years, and like any credible economist, he has data to prove it. He also discusses the economics behind R&D, and tells us that the primary mover of growth in the coming years will be the revolution brought by ideas in R&D.
It is not hard to imagine the things he say; after all, this is what TED is all about: sharing ideas that might one day change the world and telling it in every language possible.
