Schumpeter on LNL

 schumpeter2.jpeg

For anyone who’s interested, McCraw’s bio of Schumpeter will be the main item for your delectation on LNL tonight. Here’s a review I’ve not read yet.

‘Prophet of Innovation: Joseph A Schumpeter and Creative Destruction’: Phillip talks to Harvard Business historian Thomas McCraw about  his new biography looking at the extraordinary personal life and lasting professional legacy of one of the most influential scholars on capitalism.

Odd looking bird isn’t he? And he certainly had an interesting life – even if his History of Economic Analysis runs on rather.

Looks like B. A. Santamaria’s second cousin.

Listening to Philip Adam’s Late Night Live right now. Damned interesting.

It will be rebroadcast after the 4pm news on Radio National tomorrow [Thursday] in eastern Australia [not sure of times in SA, NT, WA or at the new concentration camp for politicals on Christmas Island]. Anyway, it’s podcast” http://www.abc.net.au , go to Radio National and follow the links.

Thanks for that tip, Nicholas. It was interesting, but the questions were a bit disappointing. Schumpeter’s theory of cycles, his theory of profit, his role as a forerunner of evolutionary economics — none of these were touched on. A listener who didn’t know anything about the subject might come away thinking: so Schumpeter highglighted the entrepreneur — big deal! Economics really isn’t Philip’s strong suit.
