  5. How Innovation Works: And Why It Flourishes in Freedom, by Matt Ridley. HarperCollins, 2020. We need to change the way we think about innovation, to see it as an incremental, bottom-up, fortuitous process that happens to society as a direct result of the human habit of exchange, rather than an orderly, top-down process developing according to a plan. Ridley tells lively stories of scores of innovations, how they started and why they succeeded or in some cases failed. Some of the innovation stories he tells are about jet engines, search engines, coffee, potatoes, vaccines, mosquito nets, fertiliser, zero, dogs, farming, fire, fraudulent blood tests, copyright and even - a biological innovation - life itself. https://www.amazon.ca/How-Innovation-Works-Flourishes-Freedom/dp/0062916599.
