Ned Phelps, Nobel Prize
  • Economies today lack the spirit of innovation.
    Labor markets do not need only more technical
    expertise they require an increasing number of
    soft skills, like the ability to think
    imaginatively, develop creative solutions to
    complex challenges, and adapt to changing
    circumstances and new constraints.
  • That is what young people need from education.
  • A necessary first step is to restore the
    humanities in high school and university
    curricula. Exposure to literature, philosophy,
    and history will inspire young people to seek a
    life of richness one that includes making
    creative, innovative contributions to society.
  • Countries worldwide can use the humanities to
    develop or revive the economies that drove this
    ascent, while helping individuals to lead more
    productive and fulfilling lives.
