I love it!

The Enlightened Economy would be an excellent suggestion for the listening list of a graduate student seeking a thoughtful review of much of the literature on the Industrial Revolution. More casual general listeners should be forewarned, however, that this is a work of scholarship, packed with details that may not consistently hold their interest.

Awesome audible

These connecting sinews between Enlightenment thought and economic development seems plausible enough, although one might quibble that author is stronger at asserting the nexus than he is at demonstrating it compellingly. The bulk of his book, in fact, is not especially dependent on the scaffolding of this theme and could easily stand alone.

brilliant

He proposes that the Enlightenment abetted economic development on another front, as well: it helped place "rent-seeking" (mercantilist policies of monopoly and privilege) on the defensive, as the ideas of Adam Smith and others filtered into political discourse.

well done

The author believes the extensive literature on the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution have remained mostly disjointed from one another. In The Enlightened Economy, he seeks to connect them.

It was a great journey into our history.

This set of books complemented each other. The people who were influencing the world around them was fascinating. The industrial revolution would have different without them. It was a great journey into our history.

Amazing!

A great duo of books, quick insight to some of the best thinkers that got us to where we are today, and how the industrial revolution got us to where we are today also. The books definitely pique the interest and make you want to dive in a little deeper about the subject.

A great Audible!

Many events affect humanity but change happens on a grander scale. These two books cover such eras of grand scale that change how we innovated and operated as a society in thought as well as in productivity shaping the world along the way. A great Audible!
