Charles Leadbeater at PraxisUnico 2013

The frugal future

Last week I attended the PraxisUnico 2013 annual conference of technology transfer professionals in Nottingham.

The first keynote speaker was Charles Leadbeater, who presented his views on the post-consumerist “frugal future”. His core assumption is that the common consumer-society innovation model of creating more/better/faster products has run out of steam, and that this has lead to the economic downturn we’re facing today.
