Our latest installment of the MIT Sloan Experts Series includes a live conversation with Simon Johnson and Jonathan Gruber, co-authors of the new book, Jump-Starting America: How Breakthrough Science Can Revive Economic Growth and the American Dream. The authors make a powerful and compelling case for how smart public investment in science and technology is the key to achieving a second golden age for the U.S. economy.
Johnson is the co-author of the bestsellers, 13 Bankers and White House Burning. Gruber served as a technical consultant to the Obama Administration and worked with both the Administration and Congress to help craft the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Erik Brynjolfsson, MIT Professor and co-author of Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing our Digital Future, among others, also appears on the program to discuss how America can regain its innovation mojo.
