Leading author and economist George Gilder—known in the 1980s as a supply-side prophet and in the 1990s as a technology futurist—marries the two fields in his groundbreaking new book, Knowledge and Power, hailed by Forbes as the “book of the year, maybe of the new millennium.” In it, Gilder shows how—left to its own devices—an entrepreneurial economy will rescue itself and usher in a new era of American prosperity; the key is applying the insights of information theory to modern economics. Madrona Venture Group Managing Director Tom Alberg joins Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Gilder in an interview about the book, the state of the U.S. economy, and how to bring about the next big boom. A reception will precede the program at 6 pm, and books will be available for purchase and signature.
