Conceptually, the piece is a treatise/manifesto on the global state of innovation and how a progressive investment firm would approach developing communities economically in order to improve society.
We’re looking for a strong voice, with a distinct neo-libertarian perspective, that sees disruptive and transformational technological innovation as a means to create change in policy, society and competitiveness.
Think: Milton Friedman meets Chuck Palahnuk
The piece should have historical and contemporary citations, but not be overly laden.
This would be a first person narrative, but have the tone of an organization.
We're looking for writers with a strong voice that are interested in economic development, finance, sociology, urban development, law and policy and write about these subjects in an exciting way.
