Ever wondered why are we so rich? – Dierdre McCloskey’s explains in her book "Bourgeois Dignity" about our increasingly wealthy middle class world and how there has been a vast increase in wealth since 1800. But why only since 1800?
Join us Wednesday, July 4, 2012 at 6:30pm at the Milton Freidman Conference Room at the Nassau Institute offices on East Bay Street to hear Mr. Mikkelsen on those issues and more.
He will inform us on:
1. Why the west got rich.
2. Why McCloskey thinks the standard explanations are insufficient.
3. Why innovation is so important for past and future progress.
4. Why the subtitle is "Why Economics Can’t Explain the Modern World," and why it is important.
Mr. Mikkelsen is a cost-management consultant who lives New York City, and has spent many months in Nassau visiting his Bahamian in laws. He’s long been a student of history and Austrian Economics.
