About this book


Society continually promotes and adjusts to technological change. While mainstream economic thought assumes tastes and technology as given, it has had little to say about how society has promoted and adjusted to technological change.
The book presents a utopian design for society in the 21st century whose purpose is to promote discovery, invention and innovation, which have become the principal aspects of national state competition.
