Joel Mokyr is Very Optimistic on Future Technological Progress

I've made a few posts in the last half year or so on the potential slowing of the rate of technological change and economic growth and the implications of continued technological change for the distribution of income. Economic historian Joel Mokyr discusses some of these issues in a very optimistic piece on the future of technological change and economic growth. He sees no real limits to advances in technology and sees the implications for the future of labor as positive.
