This book by Alex Tabarrok of the quirky and insightful blog Marginal Revolution brings together some of the great insights of economics research of the recent decades, from governments buying out patents and putting them in the public domain to how to think about the market for organ donation.

This book is in large part a reprinting of several influential articles about encouraging entrepreneurship in areas such as health insurance, bankruptcy, securities regulation, plus commentary by Tabarrok. For someone wanting to think broadly about how to foster innovation, however, this provides a thoughtful compilation of some very creative thinking.
