Are we in the midst of a second Renaissance? In his book “Age of Discovery: Navigating the Risks and Rewards of Our New Renaissance” (St. Martin’s Press, 2016), Oxford Martin School Fellow Chris Kutarna discusses his thesis that the same forces that converged 500 years ago to create the Renaissance are present again and even stronger and more widespread than they were in the 16th century.

Join AEI as Dr. Kutarna explores these findings with George Washington University’s Steven V. Roberts. They will compare our current period of innovation and discovery and the Renaissance that took place in Europe 500 years ago, discussing globalization, trade, migration, technology, and leaps in science.

Join the conversation on social media by following @AEI and @AEIecon on Twitter and Facebook.
