The Double-Edged Sword of Technology

Will Technology Save Us?

Will technological progress continue to drive progress and economic prosperity or are our best innovations behind us? Northwestern University economics professors Robert J. Gordon and Joel Mokyr presented profoundly different outlooks for America’s economic future and the role of technological innovation in that future in this conversation moderated by Rutland Herald/Times Argus Editorial Editor and VHC board member David Moats.

Recorded at the Vermont Humanities Council’s Fall Conference 2017: “The Double-Edged Sword of Technology.”
