Deirdre McCloskey: Economic Development and Love

The QoG Podcast

In this episode, Professor Deirdre McCloskey guests us to talk about a question McCloskey has devoted a great deal of her work: Why some nations are Successful and others Fail. McCloskey will explain to us her answer, which may not be the most convincing for many, but that definitely is the most beautiful and romantic: economic development is not the result of the accumulation of capital, or of exploitation, or of military conquest and colonial oppression, but of ideas and values; and, in particular, of Love. In doing this, McCloskey will defend her view that Economics is not about material or materialism, but it is about ideas. It’s not only about factories, cars, and smartphones, but mostly about what happens between the ears. And even though we will talk a lot about ideas, there will be space for the materialist's most pressing social questions: how to alleviate poverty and tackle inequality?

Ep 172 | The Rhetoric of Liberty | Guest: Deirdre McCloskey

Kibbe on Liberty

Matt Kibbe is joined by Deirdre McCloskey, distinguished professor emeritus of economics and of history at the University of Illinois in Chicago, to talk about the language we use as advocates of free market economics. McCloskey points out that economics is essentially a series of metaphors, and that we can best explain its concepts through stories rather than the dry language of academia. Meanwhile, certain jargon or stigmatized terms like “capitalism” are doing more harm than good when it comes to helping people understand why the freedom to innovate makes life better for everyone.

Ep. 17: Deirdre McCloskey │ How ideas led to a better world

Borderless

Why did gross domestic product suddenly start to skyrocket just a few hundred years ago after centuries of only gradual, marginal improvements? Dr. Deirdre McCloskey, Distinguished Professor Emerita of Economics, History, English, and Communication atUniversity of Illinois at Chicago, has written extensively on why it was not the accumulation of capital that caused what she has dubbed "The Great Enrichment"—and eventually enabled the Industrial Revolution—but rather the spread of the great ideas of liberty. On today's episode of Borderless, she joins Vale Sloane to discuss how ideas changed the world and allowed the standard of living to advance so dramatically for millions and billions of people.Dr. McCloskey prefers the term "innovism" to describe the source of this enrichment, rather than the more familiar "capitalism." Innovation, enabled by institutions such as the free market and free speech, was far more important to the economic transformation of the last few centuries than capital alone. Take a deep dive into what this means for our understanding of liberalism, history, and even the future on this episode of Borderless.Stay in the know by following us on social media:https://twitter.com/AtlasNetworkhttps://www.instagram.com/atlasnetwork/https://www.facebook.com/atlasnetwork/Support the Atlas Network Mission Today: https://www.atlasnetwork.org/donate

Jesper Geisler om kapitalisme, innovation og Deirdre McCloskey

Samfundstanker

Jesper Geisler, serieiværksætter og administrerende adm. direktør for Avenida Consult, diskuterer statsstøtte til innovation og iværksætteri og perspektivere til McCloskeys innovisme samt egne erfaringer som iværksætter. Den amerikanske økonom Deirdre McCloskey mener ikke, kapitalakkumulation er afgørende for fremgang og økonomisk vækst – kapital er nødvendigt, men ikke tilstrækkeligt. Det essentielle for økonomisk vækst er i stedet innovation, hvorfor begrebet ”innovisme” bør erstatte ”kapitalisme”. Høje skatter på kapitalafkast hæmmer markedet og iværksættere i at skabe innovation nedefra og op. I stedet for at sænke skatterne, giver politikerne statsstøtte til iværksætteri via fonde. Innovationen bliver reguleret og politisk styret, hvilket begrænser innovismen og den økonomiske vækst. En vigtig gevinst ved innovisme er at drive priserne ned, så nye produkter når ud til den brede befolkning, og velstanden øges. Links:Essay af Deirdre McCloskey om innovisme https://cepos.dk/debat/liberalism-caused-the-modern-world/ Kronik i Berlingske m.

Live event: Deirdre McCloskey og Tommy Ahlers: Er Danmark klar til at omfavne innovisme?

Samfundstanker

Dette er en optagelse fra et gå-hjemmøde i CEPOS' lokaler. Den væsentligste kilde til vores velstand er ideer, ikke kapital. Derfor er det misvisende, når vi kalder vores samfundsmodel for kapitalistisk.Det påstår professor i økonomi Deirdre McCloskey, som i stedet anvender udtrykket ”innovisme” til at beskrive de vestlige samfund. Innovisme er den samfundsmodel, der gør det muligt for mennesker at afprøve nye ideer på markedet og omsætte dem til fremgang for sig selv og andre. Innovisme har siden industrialiseringen satte i gang ført til en 30-dobling af vores velstand – et enestående fænomen i menneskehedens historie, som McCloskey kalder for ”The Great Enrichment”.Spørgsmålet er, om vores samfund fortsat omfavner innovismen, eller om det er ved at opbygge barrierer for den, som ligeledes vil hæmme den fortsatte velstandsfremgang. Det diskuterer Deirdre McCloskey i et nyt essay udarbejdet for CEPOS. Hun vil præsentere sine tanker ved denne event.Herefter vil Tommy Ahlers kommentere med baggrund i sin erfaring som både succesfuld iværksætter og politiker.Om Deirdre McCloskey: Deirdre McCloskey er professor i økonomi og historie. Hun blev uddannet økonom fra Harvard i 1960’erne og har skrevet 20 bøger og omkring 400 akademiske artikler om blandt andet økonomisk teori, filosofi og etik. Om Tommy Ahlers: Tommy Ahlers er uddannet jurist, iværksætter og tidligere uddannelses – og forskningsminister.Ordstyrer er Martin Ågerup, direktør i CEPOS og vært på podcasten "Samfundstanker"LinksProfessor McCloskyes Essay og innovisme udarbejdet for CEPOS:https://cepos.dk/debat/liberalism-caused-the-modern-world/Video fra gå-hjem-mødethttps://youtu.be/oFF4mvKstF0Optagelsen er lavet d. 8. september 2021 ved et CEPOS-arrangement
