Independent Institute Research Director Alexander Tabarrok is interviewed here by Ray Lehmann on the FIRE (Finance, Insurance & Real Estate News) Podcast for the Heartland Institute. The interview discusses many government barriers that exist that block innovation and what policy reforms could be adopted now to restore entrepreneurship and prosperity. Issues addressed include patents and intellectual property, public schools, higher education, and much more, all drawing upon Dr. Tabarrok’s new e-book, Launching the Innovation Renaissance: A New Path to Bring Smart Ideas to Market Fast.
