"We talk about toning down the rhetoric. I think the way to tone down the rhetoric is to get over this idea that there needs to be one uniform set of laws on abortion or guns—or all kinds of social issues—for all fifty states." —Jeff Deist appears on Kennedy, 25 May 2022.

In this episode of Radio Rothbard, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop consider progressivism as a form of modern colonialism. The response to the prospects of the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade has highlighted the degree to which the American left—particularly those that reside in major blue cities—can't live with the concept of other areas of the country not abiding by what they see as moral absolutes. Ryan and Tho look at how this tension is shaping the modern political landscape, and they discuss the history of this impulse towards "liberal" centralization.

How do businesses actually manage — rather than plan for — continuous change?
The increasing adoption of systems thinking in business tells us that the world is changing very fast, and companies need to change at least as fast as their environment in order to thrive. It’s comfortable to talk about but hard and uncomfortable to do. Most people prefer to continue to do what they’re used to rather than embrace change and constant experimentation.

There’s a lot to be learned from the military where special forces are trained to specialize in rapid reaction in chaotic or VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) worlds. They face an ever-changing environment (often described as kinetic). They have a very pure evolutionary process: what wins, survives. While the military organization is hierarchical, military operations are flat so that tactical decisions can be made by the people on the ground.

While we are anti-war, we can nevertheless recognize that the military has experience and expertise in managing and organizing for continuous change. We can learn from it.

Innovation in organization is at least equal in importance to technological innovation and product / service innovation. It tends to get less attention, which is a great opportunity for imaginative entrepreneurs to implement change for competitive advantage. Dr. Annika Steiber has studied organizational innovation for over twenty years and is a global authority. She shares her insights with Economics For Business, including her analysis of the most dramatic organizational innovation of all, Rendanheyi.

Professor Steiber’s most recent book is Leadership For A Digital World (https://Mises.org/E4B_170_Book1), and is her most comprehensive guide yet for business management in the digital age. She’s the author of eleven books, including The Google Model (https://Mises.org/E4B_170_Book2) and The Silicon Valley Model (https://Mises.org/E4B_170_Book3).
