The Atlantic Monthly‘s economics blogger, Megan McCardle, reviews Steven Johnson’s “Where Good Ideas Come From” in today’s Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Johnson himself has a big idea, but it’s not a particularly incisive one: He proposes that competition and market forces are less important to innovation than openness and inspiration.

McCardle packs a lot of review into a short space, and it is probably worth thinking about, especially for the Schumptoberfesters…

Yes, I just wrote that.
