Adam Thierer specializes in innovation, entrepreneurialism, Internet, and free-speech issues, with a particular focus on the public policy concerns surrounding emerging technologies.
Thierer is a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. He's authored and edited several books, including his foundational book on the freedom to innovate, "Permissionless Innovation: The Continuing Case for Comprehensive Technological Freedom." In his latest book, "Evasive Entrepreneurs and the Future of Governance: How Innovation Improves Economies and Governments," Thierer makes the case that we should accept — and often even embrace — a certain amount of disruptive entrepreneurship that fosters innovation, drives economic growth and makes government accountable to the governed. He examines how evasive entrepreneurs — innovators who don't always conform to social or legal norms — are changing the world and challenging the status quo of governance, culture and the way we earn a living.
In-person attendees will receive a free copy of Evasive Entrepreneurs and the Future of Governance.
Thierer's lecture is part of the Benjamin J. and Bettie M. Gibson Breeding Lectureship.
