This week we are joined by Chux Daniels (University of Sussex), Susan Newman (Open University UK), Nathalie Lazaric (CNRS), and Verónica Robert (UNSAM) to discuss disruptive technologies in the context of Africa and evolutionary economics. What kind of Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI) policies are being implemented in Africa? What are the strengths of the region? What is neo-Schumpeterian evolutionary economy and evolutionary political economy, and how does this relate to innovation? How do these and other more heterodox perspectives, such as complexity theory, see innovation differently from the neoclassical perspective? How does this relate to development, institutions, policymaking, inequality, and climate change?
