A few weeks ago, Jason attended the Harvard Kennedy School program. His was one of a series of courses entitled Innovation for Global Development. On this week’s show, he’ll talk about the relationships he formed there with people from all over the world. He’ll give us his newly gained insights on the development of small nations and economies all over the world. Particularly, we’ll analyse the strange case of “Leapfrogging”, an economic system that was invented out of necessity in a sub-saharan African country. We’ll discuss how an innovation like this relates to what’s going on in small town America.
