“Innovation economy” is topic of Sept. 4 talk



BAR HARBOR – Economist, investor and author William H. Janeway says the innovation economy is stalled, and he envisions a plan for getting it back on track.

Janeway will speak about the innovation economy at a free public talk at The Jackson Laboratory on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at 5 p.m. A reception will follow from 6 to 6:30 p.m.

The Financial Times named Janeway’s recent book, “Doing Capitalism in the Innovation Economy: Markets, Speculation and the State,” one of the “best economics books of the year.”

Janeway has been an active venture capital investor for more than 40 years. He received a Ph.D. in Economics from Cambridge University, where he was a Marshall Scholar. Janeway went on to found the Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance. Currently he serves as a teaching visitor at the Princeton University Economics Department and visiting scholar in the Economics Faculty of Cambridge University.

Janeway is a director of Magnet Systems, Nuance Communications, O’Reilly Media and a member of the Board of Managers of Roubini Global Economics.
