What drives the economy? This is the question that Mark Skousen answers in his lecture by evaluating three economic agents: consumer spending, government spending and business investment. He shares some economic models that can help better understand the economy. He also uses the example of Seattle to illustrate the importance of innovation and the business sector in creating welfare. Based on his ideas, Skousen shares the key to success in life. He invites the audience to look at the economy in a new way. He ends his talk with a interesting activity, teaching that there is a lot of money out there, but we have to go out and get it, we can´t wait for it to come to us.
