Tyler Cowen and I discuss innovation, art, music, touch, directionality in history, and Star Trek

Summary:
I was honored to get to spend an hour chatting with Prof. Tyler Cowen of George Mason University. Tyler is the author of several books on topics ranging from the value of commercial culture to economic stagnation in the US. Tyler is remarkable in his breadth of learning, intense curiosity, and freshness of his ideas. While he does not come from a background in the physical sciences and engineering, I nevertheless think he has a great deal to offer my audience, as I have learned an inestimable amount from his books, podcast episodes, and public appearances.

He is also the host of the podcast “Conversations with Tyler,” and author of a regular column on Bloomberg, along with engaging in a million other activities in writing, speaking, and investing. I’ve discovered many things through his books and podcast, from how to find good inexpensive ethnic food to why I should perhaps feel less guilty about my consumption of commercial culture. Back when it was safe to travel, I used to download several episodes of his podcast before long flights to academic conferences, and often remembered learning more from Tyler and his guests than I did from the conference. I invited him here today to see what an audience of natural scientists and engineers might learn from an economist. More so, I just think he has interesting thoughts on many of the topics that interest me and the people who are probably listening.
