Liberal Arts, Not STEM

Via Reihan, FLG reads this sentence:
inventions do not make us richer, do not constitute eonomic advance. Use of inventions, the use of technological advance is what does create wealth and economic advance.

What's FLG been writing for years?

Innovation Comes From Liberal Arts, Not Science And Engineering...It's the liberal arts that provide insight into what's important to people. This in turn provides insight into how technology can be useful to people, not cool technology for technology's sake.
