Book Review: The Future & Its Enemies

The Future and Its Enemies: The Growing Conflict Over Creativity, Enterprise, and ProgressThe Future and Its Enemies: The Growing Conflict Over Creativity, Enterprise, and Progress 

by Virginia Postrel




Virginia Postrel's vision of dynamism is the best guide for human action since the work of her intellectual mentor (and mine) Friedrich Hayek. In a short book of only eight chapters and less than three hundred pages she shatters myths about the nature and importance of technology, economic growth, and the nature of progress. Rather than focusing on traditional polarities such as right and left she shows how the views people take toward these issues define their lies and future. The result is an invigorating look at our world and the it's future -- and who the enemies of that future may be.
