Summary
"In less than a century, in a single place, human welfare and prosperity entered an era of sustained and explosive growth that continues to this day. The moment came in eighteenth-century Britain. And, as William Rosen chronicles in his extraordinary new history, the reason was the power of an idea: that inventors should have ownership of their inventions."
