How can research institutions promote growth, other than simply spending more money on basic R&D? Today's guest, Don Braben, argues that we need to promote scientific freedom by easing up on the strictures of peer review and the demands of obvious applicability. Only then can we enable scientists to generate more of the revolutionary discoveries that we took for granted in the twentieth century.

Don Braben is an honorary professor and vice president of research at University College London. He's the author of several books, including Scientific Freedom: The Elixir of Civilization, which was originally published in 2008 and was, in 2020, republished by Stripe Press. Don, welcome to the podcast.
