The Future of Economic Growth

Around 1750 the world economy began its amazing transformation with the advent of the Industrial Revolution. What happened then and why did it happen? The short answer, according to Michael Spence is “innovation.” But where does innovation come from? Spence traces the emergence of the global economy, marking the critical interaction of economics and governance in successful economies in the developing world.

Teddy Bobo Film Club: Series 11 (OPV: Other People’s Viewpoint)

Teddy Bobo Film Club: Think Outside the Screen ™

The Teddy Bobo Film Club will hold its eleventh series of short films + constructive thinking skills, this Friday evening (March 02 2012) in Richmond (Melbourne, Australia).

The Edward de Bono method we’ll be working with this session will “OPV” (Other People’s Viewpoint).
