Aspen Forum 2013


CREATIVE DESTRUCTION AND GROWTH: POLICY CHOICES
AUGUST 18-20, 2013

The IT revolution has been the poster child for Schumpeterian creative destruction, yielding innovations whose effects on our lives extend far beyond statistics on R&D spending imply. From infrastructure to applications, experimentation with technologies and business models has been essential to the success of the Internet economy. A policy environment that permits such experimentation is crucial for this era’s creative destruction to continue. Discussion panels and speakers at the 2013 TPI Aspen Forum focused on competition, privacy, data security, and other regulatory policies critical to the health of Internet economy.
