Andrew McAfee On More From Less

by Russell Robertsvia EconTalk
Monday, October 14, 2019

Andrew McAfee of MIT's Sloan School of Management talks about his book, More from Less, with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. McAfee argues that technology is helping developed nations use fewer resources in producing higher levels of economic output. The improvement is not just a reduction in energy per dollar of GDP but less energy in total as economic growth progresses. This "dematerialization" portends a future that was unimaginable to the economists and pundits of the past. McAfee discusses the potential for dealing with climate change in a dematerialized world, the non-material aspects of economic progress, and the political repercussions of the current distribution of economic progress.

The House Doesn’t Have To Be ‘Fair’ In Its Probe. But It Should Give Trump Due Process.

Even as they rush headlong into their unavoidable constitutional crash, President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) may yet agree on the procedures for the impeachment inquiry. Contrary to Trump’s claims, the Constitution does not require the House to be “fair” in its probe. But House leaders should still furnish the president with due process, because the Senate will not hold a serious trial that can reveal the truth.
