Information, Networks and Economic Growth - Cesar Hidalgo

Geoff Riley

10th June 2015

It was a delight to hear Cesar Hidalgo speak at the Oxford Martin School yesterday as he launches his new book Why Information Grows. Below are some notes that I took at the meeting and also a separate (and better set of notes) from one of my students who was clearly listening intently. I feel that the work of Hidalgo and Hausmann is so important in understanding the dynamic of economic growth in knowledge economies and in revelling in the cross-disciplinary opportunities between Physics and Economics.
