An interesting counterpoint to some of the things I believe. Cowen basically claims that we've reached a technological plateau. I don't really buy his argument because he bases his entire train of thought on the premise that "Our grandparents saw the invention of airplanes and refrigerators! We just have the internet and smartphones..." Um. Ok. If Cowen doesn't think that the internet and smartphones have revolutionized our society, then I'm at a loss. He does admit that they've made entertainment a lot cheaper, but he fails to recognize the entrepreneurial possibilities they enable. A good read that made me think and kept me on my toes, but I think that his argument is fundamentally flawed. I'd recommend reading "Lights in the Tunnel" by Martin Ford for an alternative view of the future.
