New interviews with Niall Ferguson

Ferguson is an original thinker who is always provocative and well worth listening to. As Consuleo Mack puts it, he definitely has the gift of gab.

Financial Thought Leader Niall Ferguson discusses why the centuries long dominance of Western economic and political power is waning and what the United States needs to do prevent it from slipping even more.

In his recent book, "Civilization: The West and the Rest," Ferguson attributes the dominance of the West over the East to the following six "killer apps":
1. Competition
2. Science
3. Property Rights
4. Modern medicine
5. Consumer Society
6. Work Ethic
