Renowned speakers will give their lectures on The Progress Trap theme. The keynote speakers are Alexa Clay, Adam Greenfield and Ronald Wright. Drawing on his bestselling book and Massey Lectures A Short History of Progress, in which he coined the term 'progress trap,' Ronald Wright will discuss how our modern social and environmental crises stem from patterns of progress and disaster that are old as civilization itself. Alexa Clay's The Misfit Economy, (the book) is in the making. It will document stories from the world's informal and black markets, exploring how the other side innovates. The Misfit Economy seeks to unveil and leverage this new well-spring of ingenuity. Join us in exploring the dark side of innovation.
