Ferguson: The Six Killer Apps of Prosperity

Niall Ferguson’s TED Global talk from earlier this summer on the “six killer apps” of prosperity. It’s all a little over-trendy for me, but … here you are:


  1. So Ferguson goes from being a generic Cambridge WW2 historian, to a historian of bankers, to a historian of finance, to now a historian of science. I guess living up to the weight of two named chairs at Harvard is hard work.

  2. Really good talk. Well worth watching.
