The Kauffman Foundation recently announced a new blog at growthology.org. Dedicated to the full range of topics surrounding entrepreneurship, growthology.org will serve as a platform to share thoughts and ideas to enhance faster economic growth, greater individual opportunity, smart government policy, and the expansion of human welfare.
Authored by two economists at the Kauffman Foundation, growthology.org will mix short essays with observations on papers, books, speeches, articles and more. Categories of content at growthology.org include such topics as “jobs of the future,” “the evolution of cities” and “law and entrepreneurship.” The blog also will welcome posts from other Kauffman experts, as well as invited guests.
“As researchers at the nation’s largest foundation devoted to advancing entrepreneurship, we have a special interest in and strong opinions about entrepreneurship, innovation and economic growth,” said Robert Litan, vice president of Research and Policy at the Kauffman Foundation and one of the blog’s coauthors. “The extensive research the Kauffman Foundation has funded and engaged in has convinced us that the linkage between entrepreneurship and growth has been unjustifiably overlooked in mainstream economics and by policymakers. We hope to play our own small part in rectifying that.”
“Our ambition is for growthology.org to become the best source for cutting-edge thinking about entrepreneurial economics, both as a place to brainstorm growth acceleration and as a place to go for links to the best thinking on the subject,” said Dr. Tim Kane, growthology.org coauthor. “For policymakers, innovation is one of those rare non-partisan topics that all parties agree is a force for good, and we have high hopes that growthology.org can help advance consensus policies that will help build stronger economies—locally, nationally and even globally.”
