EconTalk - Tim Harford on Fifty Inventions That Shaped the Modern Economy

Financial Times columnist and author Tim Harford talks about his superb book, 'Fifty Inventions That Shaped the Modern Economy'. Highlights include how elevators are an important form of mass transit, why washing machines didn't save quite as much time as you'd think, and the glorious illuminating aspects of light throughout history. If you like this podcast you'll love the book, which I'd rank amongst my top 5 favourite reads.
